(PRESS RELEASE) -- Jackpocket and the Boston Red Sox today announced a new multi-year partnership making Jackpocket the team's Digital Lottery Courier Partner.

New users can enter the promo code "SOX" at checkout to receive their first $2 lottery ticket for free.
"When you think of baseball, you think of the Boston Red Sox,” said Jackpocket CEO Peter Sullivan. “We are thrilled to be the digital lottery courier partner to this historic organization and to provide Massachusetts fans a new, fun, and convenient way to play the lottery – right from their phones. That this partnership is coinciding with our launch in Massachusetts and the crowning of our first $100K ticket winners here in the state is a home run."

Additionally, Jackpocket will have a presence on Red Sox social media channels with chances for fans to get a free lottery ticket during exciting, high jackpot moments and win other prizes and experiences throughout the season.
"The Boston Red Sox are proud to partner with Jackpocket, the club's first Digital Lottery Courier," said Troup Parkinson, Executive Vice President, Partnerships, Boston Red Sox. "With their digital lottery courier app now available in Massachusetts, we are excited to work with Jackpocket to offer fans convenient access to gaming and help boost local lottery business."
