Jackpocket has continued its expansion across the US with the launch of its third-party lottery app in Arizona, partnering with Circle K on the deal.
The agreement allows Jackpocket to capitalise on the popularity of one of the largest convenience store brands in the US – in a state where it has already made significant inroads.
The two firms first worked together in the summer of 2020 in a 30-day pilot programme in Austin, Texas, before finalising a more formal arrangement in July 2021.
Peter Sullivan, Jackpocket CEO and Founder, commented: “Circle K is known around the world for offering quality products and services and is one of the top lottery retailers in Arizona. Together, we are excited to offer long-time lottery enthusiasts and new players a more accessible and fun way to play their favourite lottery games.
“At Jackpocket, we are committed to innovating the digital gaming space in a safe and meaningful manner to ensure player safety.”
Arizona is now the 15th US state where Jackpocket is active; the third-party lottery app entered its 14th last November in West Virginia.
Players in the Grand Canyon State can now use Jackpocket to play games such as Powerball and Mega Millions, making payments directly through the app.
Melissa Lessard, Head of North American Marketing at Circle K, added: “Circle K is proud to partner with Jackpocket to make this fun, user-friendly experience available to every player in Arizona.
“We strive to make our customers’ lives a little easier every day, and our partnership with Jackpocket aligns closely with this mission by making lottery more accessible, user-oriented and convenient.”
