The Garden State is growing online lottery sales.

Jackpot.com, a lottery ticket courier service, has launched in New Jersey, marking the sixth state the company offers its online lottery services. The New Jersey launch is a significant one, as the state’s lottery sales are massive — they totaled more than $3.7 billion in fiscal year 2023.

CEO Akshay K. Khanna said in a news release:

“We’re thrilled to announce Jackpot.com’s New Jersey launch, the sixth state that will feature our unique service. We are excited to help New Jerseyans play the lottery online with increased convenience, security, and safety. At Jackpot.com, we’re always looking to enhance the player experience through increased accessibility and a more convenient and secure environment for players to purchase tickets.”

Jackpot.com is available in Arkansas, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, and Texas.

Key takeaways

  • New Jersey is the sixth state Jackpot.com has launched.
  • The New Jersey Lottery is not allowed to sell its tickets online.
  • Online gaming is a big industry in New Jersey.

Popular NJ Lottery games are available on Jackpot.com

Those within New Jersey state lines can use the Jackpot.com app to buy NJ lottery tickets and games. Options for purchase include:

  • Powerball
  • Mega Millions
  • Pick-3
  • Pick-4
  • Cash 4 Life

The New Jersey Lottery cannot sell lottery tickets online directly to consumers, so couriers like Jackpot.com purchase tickets for lottery customers.

When someone opens the Jackpot.com app and, for example, buys a Powerball ticket, Jackpot.com takes that money and buys the ticket on the customer’s behalf.

Customers who win prizes under $600 can receive money through the app. For those who win $600 or more, Jackpot.com delivers the winning ticket to the customer, who then takes it to a lottery retailer or lottery headquarters and files a claim form just as they would if they bought the ticket in person.

New Jersey’s online gaming sector brings in hundreds of millions each month

New Jersey is one of the leading states in the country for online gaming. The state has legal online sportsbooks and casinos, and is home to a pair of lottery couriers: Jackpot.com and Lotto.com.

The state’s sportsbooks brought in $106.2 million in revenue in April, according to PlayNJ, most of which came from online sportsbooks. New Jersey online casinos generated $187.9 million in revenue in the same month.

New Jersey isn’t the only leader in online gaming in its part of the country. The tri-state area—New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania—is home to the biggest online casino market in the country (Pennsylvania) and the biggest sports betting market (New York).

Additionally, New Jersey and Pennslyvania offer online casinos, sportsbooks, and lottery sales.
