Android users, do we have some big news for you…
Real-money lottery apps are now allowed on Google Play for the first time in select states.
The full Jackpocket app for ordering lottery tickets is now available for download in the Google Play Store in New York. In fact, we are the *only* gaming app licensed by a state lottery to debut on the Google Play Store.
Why is this big news?
We’ve always had a Jackpocket app for Android. Because of Google’s restrictions on real-money gaming apps in the Play Store, we offered our Android app for download on our website and a “lite” version of the app for checking lottery results nation-wide on Google Play.
Google updated its policy on March 1, 2021 to allow approved real-money gaming apps, including online casino games, lotteries, sports betting, and daily fantasy sports, to appear in the Play Store. As the first and only officially-licensed lottery courier in New York, Jackpocket fits the bill.
We’re excited to offer a simpler, more seamless Jackpocket experience for our Android users in New York—and we're working with Google to list our app on the Play Store in more states.
To download Jackpocket for free from Google Play:
Go to Google Play Store

But what if I’m not in New York?
