Mobile lottery app Jackpocket has been nationally recognized for promoting responsible gaming practices with the 2019 Best Corporate Social Responsibility Award from the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG).
The award was made as a result of the company’s commitment to preventing and addressing problem gaming. The app safeguards against abusive game play through a variety of consumer protections, including daily deposit and spend limits, an option to self-exclude from play, and in-app access to NCPG’s resources and support hotline. The firm also promotes responsible gaming through its website, blog, social media pages, newsletters and ads.
Founder and CEO Peter Sullivan explained: “Our mission is to create a more convenient, fun and responsible way to play the lottery, and we strive to promote responsible gaming in all that we do. We’re grateful to the NCPG for recognizing our work on this issue and thank them for the incredible honor.”
Jackpocket previously received an Internet Responsible Gambling Compliance Assessment Program (iCAP) certification in 2018, meeting NCPG’s highest standard in the US for responsible online gaming.
