Jackpocket, the nation’s largest third-party mobile app for purchasing lottery tickets, has been forging partnerships with professional sports teams across the country all year. The Dallas Stars are its newest ally.
Jackpocket has deal with 3 Texas teams
Jackpocket is the only official third-party lottery ticket provider in Texas. It is not affiliated with the Texas Lottery.
The union between the Stars and Jackpocket became official on Dec. 1. It is effective immediately and will remain in place through the 2025-26 NHL season. It is also the third professional sports partnership in Texas for Jackpocket, along with the Dallas Mavericks and Texas Rangers.
Per the agreement, Jackpocket will sponsor multiple sweepstakes at various Stars home games. In turn, the Stars will run special events and also give away VIP experiences to Jackpocket winners.
Both parties express mutual enthusiasm
Representatives from Jackpocket and the Dallas Stars made public statements. Dallas Stars President and CEO Brad Alberts said he’s excited to enhance fan experience.
“We are excited to launch this new partnership with Jackpocket and bring the excitement and convenience of its digital lottery courier app to our great fans. Jackpocket is going to be our trusted partner, and we could not be more excited about working together to elevate our game-day experiences for our most loyal fans.”
In inking a deal with the Stars, Jackpocket now works with both tenants inside the American Airlines Center. Jackpocket founder and CEO Peter Sullivan talked about increased visibility inside the venue.
“We’re thrilled to announce our latest major sports franchise partnership with the Dallas Stars, the only NHL team in Texas. As the team’s official digital lottery courier, we’re excited to start this new partnership and look forward to seeing our logo featured on the Stars scoreboard at Dallas’ American Airlines Center.”
