A longtime lottery player from Humble hit the big time and won the Texas Two Step drawing a couple of weeks ago, a $225,000 cash prize. What was Jamie G.’s secret?

It may have been the numbers he chose. Like many lottery players, Jamie G.’s numbers have special meaning to him. They include his family’s birthdays and ages, and the date his dad passed away.

Jamie G. also had another “secret.”

He used an app, Jackpocket, a lottery app that securely allows players to order official lottery tickets on their phone from state-licensed retailers.

“We are so excited for Jamie and his win,” said Pete Sullivan, the creator of Jackpocket. “When Jamie shared his excitement about his win with us, he mentioned that he was a longtime lottery player but just had been using Jackpocket for only three days.”

Jamie G. isn’t the only Texan to win using the Jackpocket app.

“The biggest winner in Jackpockets’ history hails from Houston and won the $2.1 million Texas Two Step jackpot in March 2021,” said Sullivan.

Sullivan was inspired to create Jackpocket when he noticed his lottery-loving dad playing social games on his smartphone. An idea began to take shape. He formulated an app to modernize the lottery and make it easier — and fun — for his dad.

“My dad was such an avid lottery player,” recalled Sullivan. “I remember being late to high school football practice because we were in line waiting to buy dad’s daily lottery tickets.”

Sullivan knows all about “app world.” A New Jersey native, he earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Rutgers and a master’s degree in finance and banking from Stockholm University. Prior to founding Jackpocket out of his New York office in 2015, Sullivan also founded Tripl, one of the first social travel applications to launch using Facebook Connect.

Now, as Jackpocket’s chief executive, he works with lottery commissions and state regulators to introduce Jackpocket across the country.

“We are on a mission to create a convenient, fun and responsible way to play the lottery,” said Sullivan. “Besides Texas, we are available in Arkansas, Colorado, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon and Washington, D.C.”

Here is how Jackpocket works.

After the app is downloaded, players place orders for their favorite games, check lottery results, join lottery pools with other Jackpocket players and turn on “auto play’ so they never miss a drawing.

The app also automatically notifies players when they win, providing a ticket image and serial number, assuring players that their ticket has been purchased.

“When a user places an order, we send them an email confirmation that includes all the details of their order,” said Sullivan. “Once we have secured the ticket from a licensed lottery retailer that we partner with, we also send a high-resolution scan of their paper ticket — front and back. The paper ticket is securely stored in a locked, fireproof vault.”

If the ticket wins $599 or less, the Jackpocket account is credited, and the user can send the winnings to their bank account. Larger prizes are transferred in a secure fashion so the user can claim their prize directly from the state lottery.

There is no monthly fee or fee to sign up. Instead, because Jackpocket is considered a courier service, the app charges a small service fee when users fund their account.

“We don’t take anything from the users’ winnings,” said Sullivan. “Whatever they win is all theirs.”

Every Jackpocket player is age-verified before an order can be placed on the app, according to Sullivan.

“We not only help players participate from the convenience of their smartphone, but we also help state lotteries drive incremental revenue to fund essential state programs in education, veterans’ services, the environment and more,” he said.

And what do users think of the Jackpocket app?

“We have received more than 41,000 ratings and reviews with a 4.7-star rating,” said Sullivan.

“That positive rating makes us excited about the future,” he said. “We are expanding into new markets as we continue to offer the best and most convenient service to our users.”

The Humble winner, Jamie G., requested no photos and did not want to be identified. He did reveal that he plans to buy land with his winnings and invest the rest.

Jamie G. is the fourth Jackpocket app player to hit the Texas Two Step jackpot. Jackpocket players have won more than $60 million in lottery prizes using the app, including five individual players who have won $1 million or more, according to Sullivan.

“In Texas specifically, our players have won more than $23 million in lottery prizes, including four Texas Two Step jackpots and two $250,000 All or Nothing jackpots,” he said. “We have more than 2 million users and those users have won more than $60 million including five who won a million dollars each.”

I know the world is fast developing with different amazing tech and sci. My grand Dad used to tell us a story about his trip to Africa. After every story my dad told us, we always come to the conclusion that Africa has voodoo Powers and they can do tremendous things with them. I play lottery and the casino, for years I was searching for an Africa Doc who could predict the winning numbers with their powers because I have always believed in them, maybe because my Dad is white and my mom black. I made a trip down to Africa in search, I found someone very special. I made a lot of sacrifices for this which I took as an adventure of Life. With the help of voodoo I have won more than $15M in all my Gambling. If you are a gambler, or you are into betting, lotteries. just contact: Traditionalm@fireman.net
