Third-party lottery app Jackpocket has been named as the official digital lottery partner of the New York Mets.
This marks Jackpocket’s fourth partnership with a Major League Baseball team, following recent deals with the Minnesota Twins, Texas Rangers and Colorado Rockies.
This is also its eighth major league sports partnership.
As part of the deal, Jackpocket will have the rights to use the official New York Mets logos for online and offline advertising.
Jackpocket will also host giveaways of limited edition pieces of Mets memorabilia, as well as cross-promoting on the Mets’ social media channels.
“Partnering with the Mets has been a dream of mine, especially as a baseball fan,” said Peter Sullivan, Jackpocket founder and CEO.
“New Yorkers love the lottery and Jackpocket is always looking for ways to meet players where they are. With this latest professional sports partnership, we expand on the unique experiences created for our sports fan base and provide Mets fans with a new way to play and win.”
Brian Fling, vice president of partnerships, added that the deal would help to increase fan engagement efforts.
“As we look more and more to digital-first solutions and moments to engage with our fanbase, the New York Mets are proud to partner with Jackpocket, an institution that’s trailblazing the digital lottery space,” said Fling. “This partnership cements our dedication to exploring new ways for fans to get excited on game day and beyond.”
