Looking for a way to get New York lottery tickets online? Jackpocket lottery app is the first officially licensed New York lottery courier service. Here’s how to securely order New York lottery tickets online on Jackpocket.

  1. Place your ticket order in the app. Jackpocket then fulfills your lottery ticket on your behalf from an affiliate partner that is an official NY Lottery retailer.
  2. We’ll send a scan of your ticket, front and back, to the app for easy viewing.
  3. You’ll also get a confirmation email with the ticket serial number. The paper ticket gets stored in a fireproof safe. When it comes to your lottery ticket, we’re not messing around!
  4. Next, we’ll notify you if you’re a winner. Prize winnings of $600 and below go straight to your Jackpocket account. You can transfer these winnings to your bank account or use them to try your luck again.
  5. For wins over $600, you can pick up your ticket in person, or you can elect to have your paper ticket securely delivered to you so you can claim your prize from the state lottery.

Lottery Legal Age in New York

All states participating in the lottery have minimum age limits to get tickets. For certain states, such as Arizona, the minimum age to join the fun is 21. However, the minimum age in New York is 18. You must be 18 or over and physically located in New York to order NY lottery tickets online with Jackpocket. 

Taxes: What happens when you win?

You’re a winner! But what now? Expect Uncle Sam to want a piece of the prize. The state of New York will want some of those winnings, too. The good news is there aren’t additional luxury taxes to pay. Your lottery winnings are taxed just like regular income. For the federal government, if you’ve won a large prize, this could push you into a new income bracket. The state will collect 8.82% of your winnings, but feel good about that because these taxes actually help the state of New York! (See more on this below.) 

We recommend consulting with a certified public accountant or lawyer who specializes in lottery taxes and estate planning to find out the best way to handle your tax burden and how to protect your winnings. They can provide specific guidance for your situation to ensure you can handle the taxes you need to pay and find ways to help you reduce your tax burden so you don’t pay any more than you have to!

Give Back to New York

Feel good knowing your lottery dollars help support education in New York State. Whether you get tickets to join the NY lottery online or grab tickets in person, you’re helping education in your state. A portion of every New York lottery ticket sold funds for K-12 education. During the 2022-2023 fiscal year in New York, a whopping $3.7 billion helped children get the education they deserve.
