New York-based game provider Jackpocket will be expanding its gambling services for customers. This week, the leading US lottery courier app announced a new way for its users to access the lottery via desktop easily.
The company intends to make its lottery app available to a broader audience through this expansion. As Jackpocket’s CEO and founder, Peter Sullivan said via the company’s release:
“Our goal at Jackpocket is to make the lottery more accessible and convenient, and this launch offers our users even more flexibility to participate their way on their schedule. Between Jackpocket’s new web platform and our mobile app for iOS and Android, lottery fans can choose whichever experience suits them best.”

Users can visit Jackpocket on their desktop to register or sign in with their existing account to access the gaming selection.
Players can take advantage of 47 official state lottery games and multi-state titles. Those include:

Customers can view an image of their ticket and receive automatic notifications if they win. They can even receive prizes up to $600 instantly.
