US lottery supplier Jackpocket launched a third-party app in Idaho, offering lottery fans in the state a new way to play. While online lottery sales remain illegal in the state, Jackpocket’s service provides a sort of “work-around” that digitizes players’ experiences in some ways.

More precisely, the launch will allow a secure way for Idaho players to order state lottery tickets via their mobile devices. The news follows the US Powerball and Mega Millions lottery games reaching a combined jackpot total of $900 million.

Jackpocket Launches New Idaho Lottery App

Lottery players in Idaho can buy tickets for various lottery games, including Powerball, Mega Millions, Lotto America, Lucky for Life, Idaho Cash, Pick 3 and Pick 4.

The secure platform allows players to order tickets conveniently, view an image of their ticket(s), check lottery results and receive prizes up to $599 via their Jackpocket mobile app. Players must claim their prize from the Idaho Lottery if the winnings exceed that amount.

Jackpocket is offering players their first lottery ticket on the app for free to celebrate the launch. New players can receive a $2 lottery ticket after downloading Jackpocket and entering the code HEYID at checkout.

Idaho is the 13th state available for Jackpocket lottery play

Idaho is now the 13th state for lottery play on the Jackpocket app. Prior to this, Jackpocket’s most recent launch was in Montana in July. Jackpocket is a sponsor of multiple North American sports franchises like the New York Mets.

As Peter Sullivan, Jackpocket founder and CEO said via a press release issued on Oct. 13:

“Idaho marks the 13th state where Jackpocket is available for lottery play, making 13 a lucky number in our eyes. The Jackpocket team is looking forward to providing Idahoans, both long-time lottery players and new players alike, a digital-forward way to enjoy one of America’s favorite entertainment options.”

Other US jurisdictions where Jackpocket lottery play is available are:

  • Arkansas
  • Colorado
  • Minnesota
  • Montana
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • Oregon
  • Texas
  • Washington, DC.

Using the Jackpocket app, lottery players have won more than $190 million in lottery prizes, including twenty individual players winning prizes worth $1 million or more.

The Idaho Lottery has contributed over $1 billion to Idahoans since 1992, supporting local school districts’ needs. By increasing access to lottery play, Jackpocket aims to help drive state revenue while also attracting new consumers to lottery play.
