As the drawing approaches, you forget to swing by the gas station to get your numbers. Before you realize your mistake, the time has passed and some other lucky person has won your fortune.
Thanks to a new partnership with New York-based Jackpocket, Colorado residents will be able to purchase tickets for their favorite lottery games on a mobile app.
The Jackpocket mobile app gives players a secure way to order official state lottery tickets from their smartphones. Coloradans can now place orders for their favorite lottery games such as Powerball, Mega Millions, Lucky for Life, Cash 5 and Pick 3.
"Jackpocket provides another point of access to Colorado players," Tom Seaver, director of the Colorado Lottery, said in a statement. "Courier services offer the opportunity for us to reach players who want to use mobile technology to interact with and order our products. We hope this invites new players to the lottery and results in increased revenues to support our Lottery proceeds beneficiaries that serve outdoor conservation, outdoor recreation and schools."
After users download the app and choose their lucky numbers, they'll receive a digital scan of their ticket. Jackpocket said it is the first company to automatically lock players' identities to their ticket serial numbers, making purchases even more secure.
Jackpocket is also available in Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Texas and Washington D.C. To date, Jackpocket players have won over $6 million in lottery prizes.
"Jackpocket was founded on the idea that the lottery should be accessible and convenient to play," said Peter Sullivan, Jackpocket Founder and CEO. "Launching in Colorado was a natural fit, and we look forward to helping the Colorado Lottery drive additional revenue benefiting the great outdoors."
