“With Opening Day recently behind us, we look forward to bringing Twins fans a new way to play the lottery with this partnership,” said Jackpocket CEO Peter Sullivan. “This is Jackpocket’s first-ever partner in MLB, and I’m looking forward to this season filled with new opportunities and growth.”
In addition to giveaways and VIP experiences for fans, Jackpocket will be the sponsor of the Twins “Hits” series. Every time a Twins player gets a hit in a game, fans will get the opportunity to win a free lottery ticket on the app. The Twins will also be giving away free lottery tickets during high jackpot moments and provide chances to win tickets and other prizes in partnership with Jackpocket.
“We are thrilled to deliver our fans exciting new ways to engage with baseball, Target Field and the lottery,” said Twins Executive Vice President, Chief Revenue Officer Meka Morris. “Jackpocket is a perfect partner for the Twins as we continue to evolve our digital and game day experiences to meet our fans where they are.”
This is Jackpocket’s fifth major league sports partnership and their first in the MLB, adding to its roster of partnerships represented by the NFL, NBA, NHL, and college athletics.
Jackpocket will receive in-game advertising during Twins radio broadcasts for every home game, as well as PA announcements and Target Field videoboard advertising before, during and after each game.
