Jackpot.com expands its online lottery courier services to New York
Online lottery courier service Jackpot.com has launched in New York. The platform will enable New Yorkers to order official state lottery tickets from their mobile phone, tablet, or desktop. Through the solution, lottery players can order tickets for Powerball, Mega Millions, Cash4Life, New York Lotto, and Pick 10.
Jackpot.com purchases tickets on behalf of its customers from official state lottery retailers, displaying a scan of their ticket and transferring winnings of $600 or less in real-time to their account. If a prize over $600 is won, the service sends the winning ticket to the player so they collect the winnings themselves from the New York Lottery.
“We're thrilled to announce Jackpot.com's launch in the Empire State, the nation's second-largest lottery market,” said Jackpot.com CEO and co-founder Akshay K. Khanna. “Jackpot.com is happy to help New Yorkers order official state lottery tickets online with increased safety, security and convenience.
“At Jackpot.com, we're always striving to increase accessibility and elevate the player experience by making it more convenient and secure for players to order lottery tickets, ensuring players don't lose a winning ticket.”
The expansion is a major one for the tickets platform given the New York Lottery's status as the largest and most profitable lottery in North America, having generated more than $10.4 billion in sales throughout the 2022 fiscal year, according to the New York Lottery.

The development also comes as Jackpot.com launches a marketing partnership with the MLB's New York Yankees, which the company described as “one of the most storied professional franchises in all of sports.” The courier service has also received investments from Yankee Global Enterprises (New York Yankees) and the Tisch family (co-owners of the NFL's New York Giants).
“The Jackpot.com platform has an innovative design and provides users with 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 Senior Vice President Tony Bruno.
“We think Jackpot.com has one of the best and most progressive solutions on the market to make the lottery more accessible to tens of millions of New Yorkers. We are thrilled to be part of Jackpot.com's expansion in New York and its mission to positively change the way New Yorkers order official state lottery tickets,” added Carolyn Tisch.
In a statement, Jackpot.com said that as it expands its operations in the US it invests “significantly” in responsible gaming protections, including default limits on daily deposits, providing access to local and national responsible gambling resources, self-exclusion, self-suspension, and automated notifications. The investments have helped it launch with iCap certification from the National Council on Problem Gambling in the Empire State.
