Long Game raises $6.6 million for a savings account that doubles as a lottery ticket

Long Game is a bank account, with a twist. Every dollar saved can go toward winning a lottery. The personal finance app allows users to play games and win cash prizes. It may sound like a gimmick, but these are FDIC-insured accounts backed by Blue Ridge Bank in Virginia. And now Thrive Capital and Collaborative Fund are betting $6.6 million that Long Game will provide a windfall.
