A lucky Garden State resident is now a millionaire – over nine times as much – after winning a Pick 6 lottery draw using the Jackpocket mobile app.
Carol, a Union County health care worker, won $ 9.4 million, the highest amount ever on any mobile gaming platform in the United States, officials said.
More than 630,000 Jackpocket players have at least one victory in 2021 under their belt, with more than 7,000 users earning more than $ 100 on multiple occasions, according to a Jackpocket Press release.
Carol, who has been using the app to play Pick 6 and Jersey Cash 5 for over a year, says she feels like “living in a dream” after the monumental win.
“We’re always excited to see our users win big,” said Peter Sullivan, CEO and Founder of Jackpocket.
“This victory allows us to reflect not only on the immense growth of the industry in New Jersey, but also across the United States. The Jackpocket team is reinvigorated by this historic moment in our mission to create a more practical, fun and responsible to play the lottery. “
More than 120,000 Garden State users have won a total of $ 26 million since the launch of Jackpocket.
