White Hat Gaming has penned an exclusive online casino player account management agreement in the US with third-party lottery provider Jackpocket

As Jackpocket pivots towards online casino expansion in 2023, it has enlisted White Hat’s PAM solution including its proprietary cashier and traveling wallet to supercharge its US ambitions. 

The solutions will be built end-to-end by the platform provider to offer agility and flexibility as Jackpocket continues to expand beyond lottery tickets. 

Live in 15 US states, Jackpocket is backed by investors including Mark Cuban, Kevin Hart, and Manny Machado, offering players the opportunity to purchase lottery tickets from their phones as a courier service. 

Now the firm is building towards an online casino launch in New Jersey as it secured market access via Caesars Interactive Entertainment New Jersey. 

Tony Vartanian, Chief Growth and Revenue Officer at Jackpocket, explained: “As we continue to innovate and bring our Jackpocket users new gaming experiences beyond Lottery, we set out to identify a platform partner that could accelerate our 2023 Online Casino launch in New Jersey.  Specifically, one that would enable our teams to deliver an exceptional product experience that our users have grown to expect from us.

“We’re excited to partner with White Hat to deliver on this mission because of the team’s long-term vision, capabilities and approach to igaming in the US market.”

White Hat has also enjoyed a period of US online casino expansion in the last year as it entered several states to provide both its tech solutions and its gaming content via its White Hat Studios subsidiary.

Phil Gelvan, CEO at White Hat Gaming, said: “We are thrilled to partner with such a well-recognized and high-growth company and we can’t wait to launch Jackpocket’s igaming product and bring its amazing brand to even more players.

“The agreement is another major development in the White Hat story and once again highlights the huge potential for iGaming in regulated states.”
