Powerball players just got lucky - or maybe the people who run the Powerball. Regardless of how you look at it, in states like New York, iPhone users who want to play Powerball but don't want to venture out to the corner store can now simply use the Powerball App to play.
That's right. Powerball? There's an App for that.
Jackpocket founder Pete Sullivan said his target market was people in their 20s and 30s, especially women “who are intimidated to walk into a bodega.”
“We’re rebranding the lottery to introduce it to people who’ve never played it before,” he said.
Users get their first ticket free and can buy more with their credit cards. Subscription options let a player buy tickets whenever a jackpot reaches a certain amount.
Users are notified if they win. Prizes up to $600 are credited to their accounts for future use or withdrawal.
