Hockey fans! Jackpocket is again teaming up with the New York Islanders in a multi-year partnership establishing Jackpocket as the official mobile lottery partner of the team. That makes them the second professional sports team in the tri-state area to partner with us! (Read about our New York Jets partnership here).
With the 2021–2022 NHL season underway, Jackpocket is providing hockey fans with a new way to play the lottery. With nearly a quarter of local NYC-area sports fans playing the lottery each week, according to a 2020 YouGov survey, and digital lottery winners up 387.1% in the last year, we're excited to partner with our friends at the Islanders yet again.
“As the NHL’s first digital lottery sponsorship, Jackpocket is proud to partner with the Islanders, a New York institution,” said Jackpocket founder and CEO Peter Sullivan. “As the team starts their inaugural season in a brand new home, Elmont’s UBS Arena, we are excited to introduce their dedicated fan base to an easy way to play for big lottery jackpots right from their phone.”
Through this partnership, Islanders fans and Jackpocket players alike will have access to free lottery tickets in the Jackpocket mobile app and a variety of Islanders prizes including free tickets to attend games at the brand new UBS arena, player-signed pucks and other merchandise. Jackpocket will enhance the fan experience with in-concourse activations during home games for fans to win merchandise as well as sponsoring the puck-draw in-game feature.
Let's Kick Things Off With a Giveaway!
