Jackpocket has announced the launch of its lottery app in New Jersey, giving players a new way to order official state lottery tickets. New Jersey is the first state lottery to formally authorize lottery courier services, allowing the placement of orders through a mobile app.
Moreover, Jackpocket is the first third-party app in the U.S. that offers players the ability to order official state lottery tickets, such as Powerball and Mega Millions, from a smartphone. Jackpocket helps lotteries attract new customers, like millennials, who otherwise would not be active lottery players. The strategy seems to be working as 66% percent of current Jackpocket users are under 45 years old.
To ensure player safety, Jackpocket offers consumer protections such as spend limits, self-exclusion, and in-app access to responsible gaming resources. Jackpocket is also the first company to automatically lock a player’s identity to their ticket serial number.
The company is a member of the National Council on Problem Gambling, and the first third-party lottery service to receive a responsible gambling certification from the NCPG’s Internet Responsible Gambling Compliance Assessment Program.
