Jackpocket, a third-party digital lottery app, has partnered with the MLB franchise, New York Mets, as it continues to build its presence in US sports leagues.
The agreement sees the lottery firm become the official digital lottery partner of the Mets, offering fans deals on lottery tickets and the chance to win big prizes.
Fans in the 12 active Jackpocket states can use the code ‘LGM’ at the checkout to receive a free lottery ticket, and they are also given the opportunity to win tickets and trips to away fixtures alongside air travel and hotels.
Furthermore, Jackpocket will also host a giveaway for New York Mets fans, with the prizes featuring official licensed pieces of Mets memorabilia.
“Partnering with the Mets has been a dream of mine, especially as a baseball fan,” said Jackpocket Founder and CEO Peter Sullivan.
“New Yorkers love the lottery and Jackpocket is always looking for ways to meet players where they are. With this latest professional sports partnership, we expand on the unique experiences created for our sports fan base and provide Mets fans with a new way to play and win.”
Jackpocket is growing its presence in US sports, with MLB franchises leading the way in its portfolio of partner teams. New York Mets are the fourth franchise that the firm has partnered with, following the closure of deals with Minnesota Twins, Texas Rangers and Colorado Rockets.
It also marks the eighth major league sports partnership, with other deals coming from teams in the NFL, NBA, NHL and college athletics.
“As we look more and more to digital-first solutions and moments to engage with our fanbase, the New York Mets are proud to partner with Jackpocket, an institution that’s trailblazing the digital lottery space,” added Brian Fling, Vice President of Partnerships for the Mets.
“This partnership cements our dedication to exploring new ways for fans to get excited on game day and beyond.”
