Jackpocket, America’s #1 Lottery App, Launches in Nebraska





Jackpocket, America’s #1 lottery app, announced its launch in Nebraska, offering lottery fans across the state a new way to play their favorite games wherever they are — whether that be work, home, or on the go.*

Now, lottery players in Nebraska can use Jackpocket to play Powerball, Mega Millions, Lucky for Life, Pick 3, and Pick 5 from the convenience of their mobile phone, tablet, and computer.

As a lottery courier service, Jackpocket purchases lottery tickets on behalf of its customers from official lottery retailers. Jackpocket’s secure platform allows players to place ticket orders, view an image of their ticket, get notified automatically if they win, and even receive prizes up to $500 instantly. If players win prizes over $500, their winning ticket will be securely transferred to them so they can claim their lottery prize from the Nebraska Lottery.

To celebrate, Jackpocket is offering all Nebraskans who are 19 and older their first lottery ticket for free on the app. New players can receive a $2 lottery ticket by entering the code NEBRASKA at checkout on their first order.


“The Jackpocket team is excited to offer Nebraskans—long-time lottery players and new players alike—an easy and accessible way to play,” said Peter Sullivan, Jackpocket founder and CEO. “We’re committed to making the lottery safe, convenient, and fun. With 29 lottery millionaires and counting on Jackpocket, we’re looking forward to meeting our first big winner in the Cornhusker State!”

Proceeds from the Nebraska Lottery’s ticket sales go to good causes, including education, the environment, compulsive gamblers assistance, and the Nebraska State Fair. Since 1993, the lottery has contributed over $923 million back to the state. By broadening access to the lottery, Jackpocket will help drive state revenue while also introducing the lottery to a new audience. Over 67% of current Jackpocket users are 18 to 45 years old.

In this newly created role, Mr. Park will lead initiatives to deploy cutting edge technologies to capture additional operating efficiencies as well as oversee the integration of the proposed acquisition of Jackpocket Inc. (Jackpocket). Alan Ellingson, DraftKings’ Senior Vice President, Finance and Analytics, will be elevated to Chief Financial Officer, effective as of May 1, 2024.

Jackpocket Unveils Super Pick, the Convenient Way to Try Mega Millions and Powerball Luck





With over 300 million possible number combinations to choose from for Mega Millions, Jackpocket is making it simpler to try the luck. Jackpocket announced the release of Super Pick, a new app feature that streamlines the lottery experience for Mega Millions and Powerball fans, offering an even more convenient way to participate as combined jackpots soar past $1.3 billion.

Jackpocket’s new Super Pick feature gives users an easy way to pick every special and standard ball in the game with just one tap. Super Pick creates a series of 25 or 26 Quick Picks for each of the special ball numbers and also includes all the standard numbers in the game at least once. This hassle-free way to cover numbers could unlock big winning potential for users. Matching just the Powerball or Mega Ball on its own secures a prize of $4 or $2 respectively and is a necessary step for winning six out of nine prize levels including the grand prize.

For example, the Mega Millions drawing includes five standard numbers (1 to 70) and one gold Mega Ball (1 to 25). With Super Pick, users can easily order 25 Quick Picks that will include every standard Mega Millions number as well as a unique gold Mega Ball.

“Super Pick is the latest in Jackpocket’s long list of features that you can’t get anywhere else. Based on direct feedback from our users, we developed this feature to streamline the way they are participating in the lottery and make it the most convenient process possible. It’s been exciting to see the great interest in Super Pick already as the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots continue to rise toward historic levels,” Peter Sullivan, CEO and founder of Jackpocket, said.


Already, Jackpocket users have won nearly $1 million in prizes from Super Pick orders, including a $150,000 Powerball win in Texas and a $50,000 Powerball win in New Jersey.

With the introduction of Super Pick, Jackpocket reinforces its commitment to elevating the lottery user experience. In addition to Super Pick, Jackpocket also offers lottery enthusiasts access to multiple exciting features:

  • Smart Order: Lottery fans can set automatic orders for their favorite games so they never miss a drawing.
  • Lottery Pools: With Jackpocket Pools, participants can team up with other Jackpocket users in their state or create their own private pool with just local friends, family, or co-workers.
  • Giveaways: Users can enter Jackpocket’s exclusive in-app giveaways for chances to win vacations, sports tickets, and VIP passes in addition to any lottery winnings.
  • Automatic Win Notifications: There’s no need to remember to check winning lottery numbers, as Jackpocket users are automatically notified if they win at any prize level with prizes under ~$600 instantly credited to the winner’s account.
  • Responsible Gaming: 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.

The release of Super Pick comes on the heels of Jackpocket’s continued remarkable growth, most notably with the recent launch of Jackpocket Casino. Jackpocket has fulfilled over $1 billion in lottery ticket orders since its launch, and users have now won over $430 million in lottery prizes while using the app.
