Jackpocket announced Wednesday that a Mega Millions ticket worth $3 million was ordered in Westchester County, New York using the Jackpocket lottery app. The third-party application provides consumers a way to order official state lottery tickets.
The Quick Pick ticket matched 5 of 5 white numbers drawn in the July 22 Mega Millions drawing, only missing the gold Mega Ball. By adding the $1 Megaplier to their ticket, the player multiplied their second-prize winnings by 3X to a guaranteed $3 million.
Jackpocket Founder and CEO Pete Sullivan commented: “We can’t wait to celebrate this NY winner and are so proud to facilitate this life-changing win for them. Jackpocket’s mission is to make the lottery more accessible and convenient to play. As this historic Mega Millions crosses the $1 billion mark, it’s easier than ever to play your favorite games from anywhere in New York.”
New York saw another Jackpocket player win a $1 million Cash4Life prize on July 21 in Kings County. The back-to-back millionaires became the 5th and 6th New York lottery players to win prizes worth a million dollars or more using the app.
