Show and Tell: Yotta Savings Lottery Dashboard

Hi everyone - the plotly community has been so supportive and helpful since I started my Dash journey over a year ago. I’d like to share something I’ve recently worked on and deployed: it’s a simple dashboard to track the weekly numbers picked in the Yotta Savings Lottery and to generate numbers for you based on data analysis of historical trends.

App: https://yotta-analytics.herokuapp.com/

Github: https://github.com/bicachu/yotta-lottery-analytics

Background/Context
For those of you not familiar with Yotta Savings, it is a relatively new prize-linked savings account that incentivizes you to save money by allowing you to play the lottery for free. Their premise is simple. You deposit money into their FDIC-insured account and receive one weekly lottery ticket for every $25 you hold in your account balance. Each ticket enters you into a weekly lottery with prizes ranging from a few cents to $10 million. There are plenty of articles online if you want to find out more.

The dashboard has some heatmaps and tables to generate your own tickets based on a strategy that I came up with here. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions or come across any issues! Thanks!

Such a cool idea for an app!

Some screenshots for those just passing through. Gorgeous work :slightly_smiling_face:

The design is great too - I love these heatmaps with the thick cell borders that match the background, such a clean look. Also love how you increased the font size of the text within the graphs and charts - very readable.

Thanks for sharing!
