Lottery courier service Jackpocket was launched in Massachusetts to allow individuals of legal age to order tickets online. Thereafter, Jackpocket sends an employee to fulfill the orders at a physical Massachusetts Lottery retailer.In late July, the lottery courier service Jackpocket was launched as a non-affiliated partner of the Massachusetts Lottery. This initiative was made after the state Legislature did not provide any method to offer the Massachusetts Lottery online after passing the fiscal 2024 budget.
Fortunately, an article in Sentinel and Enterprise states that the lottery courier service provides an option to allow customers to order tickets online or through their smartphones. Further reports say the lottery courier service allows individuals aged 18 or older to buy tickets for Lucky for Life, MassCash, Mega Millions, Megabucks Doubler, The Numbers Game, and Powerball.
How Lottery Courier Service Works
According to an article in PR Newswire, the lottery courier service Jackpocket then sends an employee to personally fulfill the orders at an official Massachusetts Lottery retailer. Reports say the lottery courier service charges only the actual cost of the tickets and does not take a portion of a customer’s winnings. However, the lottery courier service charges a convenience fee when customers fund their accounts for the first time.
After a customer places an order, the scans of the tickets are uploaded to the Jackpocket account. The lottery courier service will then notify a customer if their tickets have hit the jackpot and will automatically credit winnings of up to $600 to the account. However, winnings of more than $600 must be personally claimed at a Massachusetts Lottery office. This suggests that the lottery courier service will transfer the physical ticket to the customer either through delivery or in person.
