Jackpocket has added four new games from iGaming platform provider White Hat Studios to its newly launched online casino in New Jersey.

The deal deepens a partnership between the two companies that started with an exclusive online casino player account management agreement in the U.S. in March 2023. The union extended to New Jersey in February of this year when White Hat fueled Jackpocket’s online casino rollout in the Garden State by powering the Player Account Management (PAM) system and providing games from its studio.

Now, it has added four more games to Jackpocket’s New Jersey slate.

White Hat has adapted its American Roulette, Blackjack and Blackjack Player’s Choice titles to suit Jackpocket’s brand identity and has also supplied a newly created Megaways slot title. Those titles join other White Hat games including Peaky Blinders and The Goonies. The library of games on Jackpocket includes slots, classic table games and live dealer options.

“We’re thrilled to have taken our relationship with Jackpocket to the next level by delivering exclusively branded games to the online casino,” said Armen Tatarevic, VP of Gaming at White Hat Studios.

“We worked closely with the team to ensure these games captured the energy and identity of Jackpocket, ensuring existing players would instantly resonate with the unique experiences on offer. We are especially excited about Jackpocket’s version of Blackjack Players Choice, the only blackjack available with six different side bets, that is proven to be a player favorite. Our continued dedication to providing bespoke gameplay for our valued operator partners proves that we remain the provider of choice for US online casinos.”

Peter Sullivan, CEO at Jackpocket, added that the company’s continuing partnership with White Hat “underscores a shared commitment to delivering innovative casino and iGaming experiences that excite and engage our players.”

White Hat extending reach

This is the latest in a flurry of deals and expansions for White Hat across the U.S. in 2024.

In the first three months of this year, the company has entered the Delaware market via a partnership with BetRivers, launched its PAM system with Bally’s in Rhode Island, and launched a collection of its signature games in both Connecticut and Pennsylvania as part of a partnership with FanDuel Casino.

Jackpocket continues watershed 2024

It’s also a big year so far for Jackpocket, to say the least.

The lottery app is live in 18 U.S. jurisdictions, comprised of 16 states plus Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico and its growth over the recent years made it an attractive addition for DraftKings. The sportsbook giant acquired the lottery app in a $750 million deal that was confirmed in February.

DraftKings CEO Jason Robins told investors that the acquisition, which is set to close late this year or early in 2025, can be a powerful marketing tool allowing the operator to onboard new customers year-round, highlighting the cross-selling potential of the deal.

Meanwhile, in late February, Jackpocket became the first iGaming brand to receive responsible gaming accreditation from the National Council on Problem Gambling.
