Today is the day your favorite lottery app and your favorite NFL team join forces.
Jackpocket and the New York Jets just announced a multi-year partnership establishing Jackpocket as the Official Digital Lottery Courier of the Jets. (Fancy.)
Not only does this partnership mark the first time we have worked with an NFL team, but it’s also the first digital lottery sponsorship in the NFL.
“We are excited to bring Jets fans more experiences and opportunities through our partnership with Jackpocket,” said Jeff Fernandez, Vice President, Business Development & Ventures for the New York Jets. “From unique content to on-field experiences, we look forward to everything this partnership can offer our fans.”
Through this exclusive partnership, Jets fans and Jackpocket users alike will have access to free lottery tickets in the Jackpocket app, game-day activations at MetLife stadium and prizes, and VIP game experiences, such as free game tickets, on-field experiences, and more. You’ll see us at the MetLife stadium, in Jets emails and social channels, and even in the Jets app!
“As the NFL’s first digital lottery sponsorship, Jackpocket is proud to partner with the Jets, a New York institution,” said Jackpocket CEO Peter Sullivan. “With 87% of Jets season ticket holders residing in New York or New Jersey, we are excited to introduce this dedicated fanbase to a new, easy way to try for big lottery jackpots right from their phone.”
To kick things off, we ran a sweepstakes in the app last week that is sending 5 winners (and a friend) to the Jets Home Opener vs. New England Patriots. While that sweepstakes is now closed, there's plenty more in store. Keep your eye out at MetLife and in the app!
