For the first time, people in New Jersey can play the lottery from their smartphones. Jackpocket today announced the public launch of its lottery app in New Jersey, giving players an easy, secure 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. New Jersey players can place ticket orders in the Jackpocket app for well-loved favorites such as Mega Millions, Powerball, and Cash4Life, as well as New Jersey’s own Pick-6. The launch comes as Mega Millions surpassed $340M for its next scheduled drawing on December 13th.

“Jackpocket’s mission is to make the lottery more accessible and convenient to play,” said Jackpocket Founder and CEO Peter Sullivan. “We’re proud to be the first registered lottery courier service in New Jersey, a state leading the way in innovative gaming. To date, Jackpocket players have won over $5 million in lottery prizes.”

To ensure player safety, Jackpocket offers consumer protections such as daily deposit and spend limits, self-exclusion, and in-app access to responsible gaming resources. Jackpocket 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.
