The lottery is meant to be an entertaining activity, but there are a lot of moving parts behind what makes the lottery industry run — and that includes different regulations around how businesses like ours can operate. Laws can differ within each state, and because we’re looking to bring Jackpocket to even more jurisdictions this year, we needed an A-list gaming executive who could help shepherd that growth, and help us navigate the legal ins and outs of the gaming space. Enter: Carter Vance!
We’re very proud to announce Carter is joining Jackpocket as our first-ever general counsel to oversee all of our legal affairs. He comes to us from the famed Churchill Downs, where he was a vice president and associate general counsel, overseeing all legal and regulatory matters around iGaming, sports wagering and online horse racing.
