Jackpocket Casino has made history as an emerging iGaming operator.

The New York-based operator has received responsible gaming certification from the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) becoming the first iGaming brand to receive the accreditation.

Jackpocket has received the certification as part of the NCPG’s Internet Responsible Gambling Compliance Assessment Program (iCAP), which sets the highest standard for online RG in the U.S.

Jackpocket received the accreditation following an arduous certification process, which included a product and website evaluation and an audit of the company’s RG policies. The company also had to show a commitment to player safety through its various features.

“In achieving iCAP accreditation, Jackpocket Casino has emerged as a pioneer in prioritizing player protection and responsible gambling practices within the U.S. iGaming landscape,” said NCPG Executive Director Keith Whyte. “We applaud Jackpocket for emphasizing the safety of their users and for setting an exemplary standard for the industry.”

Jackpocket has made history as an iGaming operator following a blockbuster acquisition.

Earlier this month, DraftKings agreed to acquire Jackpocket in a deal valued at $750 million. The Boston-based company will pay $412.5 million in cash and roughly $337.5 million in class A common stocks, which will be issued to Jackpocket shareholders.

DraftKings projects the transaction, which is subject to regulatory approvals, to generate between $240 million and $340 million in incremental revenue in FY2026. That same fiscal year, the acquisition could drive between $60 million and $100 million in adjusted EBITDA.

Jackpocket is available in 16 states as well as Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.
