3. Choose your game and your numbers.
Much like buying a lottery ticket at a convenience store, you can choose your own numbers or choose a âQuick Pickâ randomizer.
4. Place your order.
The app purchases your ticket from a local authorized retailer in your state.
5. Display your post.
Jackpocket sends a scan of your ticket to your app and an order confirmation to your email address. During this time, your hard copy of your lottery ticket is stored in a fireproof safe.
6. If your ticket is a winner, collect all your winnings
Winnings of less than $ 600 are deposited directly into your Jackpocket account. You can then transfer your winnings directly to your bank account.
You can also choose to use your credits to buy additional lottery tickets.
If your winning ticket is worth more than $ 600 (in New Jersey it’s worth more than $ 599.50), Jackpocket will deliver the winning ticket directly to you. so you can redeem it for your state’s lottery.
