Monday night’s Powerball jackpot has the potential to be the largest lottery prize in United States history; that is if someone actually wins it. The estimated pre-tax jackpot of $1.9 billion for Nov. 7, 2022, still comes with the vaunted 1 in 292 million odds.
Regardless, someone eventually has to defy those odds and match all six numbers in the correct order. While millions of people in the US are rushing to buy their tickets before Monday night’s cut-off, you might not have to spend a single penny to get your ticket.
Jackpocket offers free chances at the US’ largest lottery prize ever
Jackpocket is offering free Powerball tickets through its app Monday. Just as some states allow lottery winners to claim their prizes anonymously, your location is important when buying lottery tickets with Jackpocket.
If you’re in one of 14 US jurisdictions and of legal age to play the lottery there, you qualify for two of the three conditions to get a free Powerball ticket. The other condition pertains to your relationship with Jackpocket.
Jackpocket is an online lottery ticket courier service that offers the ability to buy tickets for lottery games such as Powerball through its app in 13 states plus Washington, DC. Those 13 states are:
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- New York
- West Virginia
To take advantage of Jackpocket’s promotion before Monday night’s Powerball drawing, you need to be within one of those states and be of legal age for lottery play there. You need not legally reside in one of those jurisdictions.
For example, if you’re a Pennsylvanian, you can cross state lines into New Jersey, New York, Ohio, or West Virginia to use Jackpocket there.
There is one other important consideration when it comes to getting a free Powerball ticket through the app, though.
New users only for this free Powerball ticket promo
The promotion for a free Powerball ticket is only available for new users of Jackpocket’s service. If you’ve ever played any lottery game with Jackpocket in any place before, you’re out of luck with this promotion.
For new customers, simply use the promo code “FREEPB” when you check out to get your free play. While a historic $1.9 billion win would represent an astronomical return on a $2 ticket, it could be even sweeter if you snag the winning play for free.
