Jackpot.com Launches New York Lottery Courier Service

Spread the Word:

Jackpot.com, an online lottery courier service, has made its grand entrance into the New York market. It provides residents with a convenient way to order official state lottery tickets from mobile devices. The European operator is currently growing its U.S presence, and also announced a marketing partnership deal with the New York Yankees Major League Baseball (MLB) team.

The platform’s launch in the Empire State, the nation’s second-largest lottery market, is a significant milestone for the company.

Lottery courier services allow players to buy scratchcards and lottery tickets via proxy that might otherwise only be available through different vendors or at retail stores.

“We’re thrilled to announce Jackpot.com’s launch in the Empire State, the nation’s second-largest lottery market,” said Akshay K. Khanna, Jackpot.com CEO and cofounder, in a press release.

“Jackpot.com is happy to help New Yorkers order official state lottery tickets online with increased safety, security, and convenience.”

A New Era of Lottery Play

The platform allows lottery enthusiasts to order tickets for popular games such as Powerball, Mega Millions, Cash4Life, New York Lotto, and Pick 10. Jackpot.com purchases tickets on behalf of its customers from official state lottery retailers, scanning the tickets and displaying them to the customers.

Winnings of $600 or less are transferred in real-time to the customer’s account. For prizes more than $600, the winning ticket is sent to the player for them to collect their winnings directly from the New York Lottery.

Interestingly, Jackpot.com takes no fee from players at any stage of the process. That is not the same with some of its rivals in the lottery courier space.

The New York Lottery, the largest and most profitable lottery in North America, generated more than $10.4 billion in sales throughout the 2022 fiscal year. It has paid more than $78 billion in taxes since it was established back in 1967, including $3.6 billion in 2022.

Jackpot.com’s expansion into this market shows its U.S. growth intentions. It already operates in dozens of international markets across Europe and further afield.

Jackpot.com, operated by Lottomatrix Operations Limited out of the European island-nation of Malta, is just the latest lottery courier app to spread across U.S markets.

Responsible Play for New Yorkers

Back in June, we reported on the rapid expansion of Jackpocket, the first lottery courier app to launch in the U.S. It is now a $650 million business operating in 16 states, and counts Mark Cuban and Kevin Hart among investors. It began in 2013.

As Jackpot.com expands its operations in the U.S., it is also investing significantly in responsible gaming protections.

These include default limits on daily deposits, providing access to local and national responsible gambling resources, self-exclusion, self-suspension, and automated notifications.  Because of these measures, the New York app launched with iCap certification from the National Council on Problem Gambling.

“The Jackpot.com platform has an innovative design and provides users an easily accessible interface to order official lottery tickets. We know that it will be enjoyed by consumers, and the Yankees are excited to see it launch in New York State,” said New York Yankees SVP Tony Bruno.
