Single Largest Jackpocket Win in the State of Colorado Goes To App User in Fort Collins
DENVER, July 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Jackpocket, the leading third-party app in the U.S. to provide a secure way to order official state lottery tickets, announced its largest single winner in the state of Colorado. A woman in Fort Collins won a record $1,362,575 on June 13 after ordering a Colorado Lotto+ ticket on the Jackpocket lottery app.
The winner, Lisa C., found out she won a seven-figure lottery prize when she received an automatic winner email from Jackpocket.
"When I read my email, I thought it was a sign. We'd been looking at getting married and buying a house but we've been waiting to be financially stable to do so. I have 3 kids who just started driving! So, now we're going to get married."
Lisa has been playing the lottery occasionally with Jackpocket for the last 18 months. A game reminder from the app led to her lucky ticket order.
"I hadn't played for a while and I saw a thing on my pop-ups come up, " she said. "I thought, 'Might as well!'"
One $2 Quick Pick ticket was all it took.
"We're so proud to facilitate this life-changing win for Lisa, our biggest lottery winner to date in the state of Colorado," said CEO Peter Sullivan. "Jackpocket was founded on the idea that the lottery should be accessible and convenient to play, and we are thrilled when we get to celebrate a major win like Lisa's."
