JACKPOT.COM LAUNCHES IN MASSACHUSETTS

 

Jackpot.com, the leading lottery app and website that allows customers to securely buy official state lottery tickets and collect winnings directly from their phone, desktop, or tablet, announced its launch in Massachusetts.

Customers in Massachusetts can now say goodbye to time spent waiting in line, searching for lost tickets, and missing out on prize money. Jackpot.com’s platform gives customers a better experience across all stages of play – from buying tickets, to notifying customers when they win, to securely transferring winnings immediately into their account.

Jackpot.com will offer Powerball, Mega Millions, Mass Cash, and Lucky for Life tickets, with more games to be included in the near future. To celebrate the Massachusetts launch, customers can receive a free ticket by entering promo code MASS on their first play.

“We’re excited to bring Jackpot.com to Massachusetts and offer customers a better experience to get in on the fun and try their luck on a winning ticket,” said Akshay Khanna, Jackpot.com CEO & co-founder. “Every year, billions of dollars from the lottery go unclaimed due to lost tickets or otherwise. When you play the lottery with Jackpot.com on your phone, tablet, or computer, there’s no missing out on jackpots and your winnings are instantly transferred to you.”

Jackpot.com’s recent expansion across the United States is quickly transforming the one hundred billion dollar lottery industry. The company operates in Texas, New York, and Ohio, and boasts investments from major players in sports, entertainment, and gaming, including Massachusetts institutions such as the Kraft Group, Fenway Sports Group President Mike Gordon, Former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein, and Boston Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy.

Jackpot.com’s growth and adoption across states with the biggest lotteries in the country, including Massachusetts, is ushering in a new era. Its progressive platform not only modernizes how to play, but also empowers customers to play responsibly, with industry-leading safeguards and technology to identify problematic gaming.

Jackpot.com sets a new standard for responsible gaming and leverages safety guardrails and modern conveniences that are distinctive to digital platforms. The company has invested significantly in responsible gaming protections by setting default limits on daily deposits, providing access to local and national responsible gambling resources, self-exclusion, self-suspension and automated notifications that offer help if problematic behavior is detected. These investments helped Jackpot.com become the only lottery courier service to launch with iCap certification from the National Council on Problem Gambling.

Since its founding in 1972, the Massachusetts Lottery has generated over $149 billion in revenues, awarded over $105 billion in prizes, and contributed more than $32 billion in net profit for unrestricted local aid for cities and towns in the Commonwealth.
