Massachusetts residents can now buy official state lottery tickets from their phone.

Jackpot.com has entered the online lottery scene in Massachusetts, launching in the Bay State.

The app allows people to securely buy official state lottery tickets from their phone. Now, residents can enter the state lottery without needing to leave their home to buy a ticket.

Users will be notified directly if they win and are also able to collect winnings via their phone or computer, which will then be securely transferred into their chosen account.

The Jackpot.com app has also launched in Texas, Ohio and New York. The Massachusetts launch marks the app's fourth state as the company hopes to digitize the lottery across the US.

The company is supported by key figures in sports and entertainment, including the Kraft Group, Fenway Sports Group President Mike Gordon and Boston Red Sox CEO and President Sam Kennedy.

Jackpot.com CEO & Co-Founder Akshay Khanna commented on the app’s launch in a new state: "We're excited to bring Jackpot.com to Massachusetts and offer customers a better experience to get in on the fun and try their luck on a winning ticket.

"Every year, billions of dollars from the lottery go unclaimed due to lost tickets or otherwise. When you play the lottery with Jackpot.com on your phone, tablet, or computer, there's no missing out on jackpots and your winnings are instantly transferred to you."

Jackpot.com is relatively new, launching in January 2023 after a $42m funding round, with the goal of modernizing the purchase and tracking of state lottery tickets in the US.
