The app’s launch coincides with its partnership with convenience store chain Circle K. The days of losing a lottery ticket in Arizona could be over or possibly hindered by a state lottery outage. Tickets for Arizona Lottery and other multistate games will be available at the chain stores and through the app’s courier service.
Jackpocket CEO and founder Peter Sullivan said in a press release:
“Circle K is known around the world for offering quality products and services and is one of the top lottery retailers in Arizona. Together, we are excited to offer long-time lottery enthusiasts and new players a more accessible and fun way to play their favorite lottery games
“At Jackpocket, we are committed to innovating the digital gaming space in a safe and meaningful manner to ensure player safety.”
How does the Arizona lottery app work?
Founded in 2013, Jackpocket is a courier service that aims to make playing lottery games more convenient, fun and responsible. They’re the first third-party lottery app in the US that allows players to order official state lottery tickets safely and securely.
When using Jackpocket, players get a choice after picking the game they want to play by picking their numbers, or entering “quick play” using a numbers block.
Once the player orders their ticket, Jackpocket buys the ticket from Circle K. They’ll send players a scan of their ticket via the app, along with a purchase confirmation to the player’s email, while safely storing the physical ticket for the customer.
The app will notify players when they win, checking their ticket numbers. Winnings less than $600 are sent directly to the player’s Jackpocket account. In the event of a big win, the player’s ticket will be safely delivered to them, or they can pick it up if they so choose.
The only fees charged to the player are when they fund their account to cover the costs of the courier service.
