Players can view orders, purchase tickets and get instant winnings notifications on their computers.

Jackpocket has released a version of its app that is compatible with desktop. Players in 15 states will now have access to their Jackpocket accounts and will be able to place and view ticket orders from their desktop computers.

The desktop feature also allows players to receive some prizes instantly, along with automatic notifications for their winnings. The platform supports lottery games from 47 states and provides players with several protection options like self-exclusion, daily deposit and spending limits.

Jackpocket CEO and Founder Peter Sullivan elaborated on the company’s desire to make its service more accessible to players through multiple device options.

He commented: "Our goal at Jackpocket is to make the lottery more accessible and convenient, and this launch offers our users even more flexibility to participate their way on their schedule.

"Between Jackpocket's new web platform and our mobile app for iOS and Android, lottery fans can choose whichever experience suits them best. While nearly 70% of Jackpocket mobile app users are ages 18–45, we're seeing early success reaching a different audience with our desktop product. Over 60% of our desktop users are ages 45 and older."

Jackpocket launched its app in 2013. Since then, players have walked away with more than $200m in lottery prizes.

The company recently launched its lottery app in New Jersey, joining nine other states that already have the feature. The app is currently available in Arkansas, Colorado, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Texas and Washington DC.

The National Council on Problem Gambling has issued the third-party app a responsible gambling certification.
