Jackpocket has signed up comedian and television personality Scott Rogowsky to lead the third-party lottery provider’s first-ever live game, Jackpot Live.

Best known for his time hosting the mobile game show HQ Trivia, Rogowsky has joined the Jackpocket team as Host and Executive Producer of Jackpocket Live, a ‘brand new entertainment experience’ offering daily cash prizes.

The new game – launching later this year on Jackpocket’s app – is another show of the firm’s commitment to expanding its offerings further than its origins of lottery, after also underlining its desire for growth in the online casino sector with an exclusive player account management agreement signed with White Hat Gaming earlier this year.

Commenting on Rogowsky’s move to Jackpocket, Peter Sullivan, CEO and Co-Founder, said: “We’re so pleased to welcome Scott to Team Jackpocket as we continue to trailblaze in this industry while delivering the very best lottery and gaming experience around.

“Already beloved by the millions of people who tuned into HQ Trivia, Scott will bring his quick wit, charisma, and improvisational chops to this brand new game on Jackpocket that lottery fans will love.

“Jackpocket Live is the first of many product expansions we’re excited to bring our users this year. There’s a lot more fun to come.”

This week’s announcement further confirmed that production for Jackpocket Live will be based out of the company’s second headquarters in Santa Barbara, California, which, ironically, is not one of the 16 US states where Jackpocket offers lottery play via mobile app and desktop.

Rogowsky, meanwhile, will share Jackpocket Live hosting duties with a ‘variety of other celebrities’ while also serving as Executive Producer to lend his ‘expertise and directional guidance’ to the game’s creative and production process.

“Get ready for the greatest thing to hit your phone since, well, Jackpocket!” said Rogowsky. “I’m so excited to be part of Jackpocket’s expansion into live streaming content and for folks to try the new game when it hits the app this year.

“We’re gonna have some fun, win some cash, and feel good doing it.”
