Jackpocket Expanding its Reach
Beyond MLB, the Mets are the eighth major league sports partnership. Jackpocket has teams in MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, and college athletics on its roster.
Fans will have the opportunity to win trips to on-the-road games, including roundtrip air travel, hotels, and game-day tickets for two guests. Also, Jackpocket will host giveaways, including Mets memorabilia prizes.
"Partnering with the Mets has been a dream of mine, especially as a baseball fan," Jackpocket founder and CEO Peter Sullivan said in a news release. "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."
Mets Off to Good Start This Season
The Mets are in first place in the National League East division with a 58-35 record. The team also has five World Series appearances and two titles.
Before each home game at Citifield, the Mets will play a pre-game Jackpocket commercial and “provide Jackpocket with full in-stadium advertising on their LED ribbon board.”
"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," Brian Fling, Vice President of Partnerships for the Mets, said. "This partnership cements our dedication to exploring new ways for fans to get excited on game day and beyond."
The deal also provides Jackpocket with rights to use the Mets' official logos for online and offline marketing.
Jackpocket will also “cross-promote on the Mets' social channels to give away free tickets and promote the exclusive sweepstakes prizes being offered.”
Fans in Jackpocket’s “active markets” can use code “LGM” at checkout to receive a free lottery ticket.
