The app gives New Yorkers an easy and secure way to order official state lottery tickets from their smartphones, the operator said.
New York is the app’s tenth state launch following Arkansas, Colorado, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, and Washington DC.
“As a native New Yorker and growing up watching my father play the lottery, being able to use Jackpocket in New York is personal for me,” Jackpocket founder and chief executive Pete Sullivan said.
“Jackpocket’s mission is to make the lottery more accessible and convenient to play. I’m proud that now it’s easier than ever to play your favorite games from anywhere in New York.”
