“With this partnership, we’re looking forward to engaging both Rangers fans and lottery fans alike, as baseball and the lottery are subsets of two of America’s favorite entertainment options,” said Jackpocket CEO Peter Sullivan. “Texas has a big appetite for the lottery, and Jackpocket is always looking for ways to meet players where they are. This partnership seamlessly provides people with a new way to play.”
In addition to giveaways and VIP experiences for fans, Jackpocket will be the presenting partner of the Rangers’ “Hit It Here” promotion. During every Rangers home game (both in the regular season and postseason), one fan will have the chance to win a $10,000 cash prize when a Rangers player hits a home run with a ball hitting a sign in right field. The Rangers will also be giving away free lottery tickets during high jackpot moments and provide chances to win tickets and other prizes.
“The Texas Rangers organization prides itself on being at the forefront of innovation and fan engagement,” said Jim Cochrane, the Rangers Senior Vice President of Partnerships. “As such, the Rangers are thrilled to partner with Jackpocket to bring fans opportunities to experience Rangers baseball in unique and exciting ways while also providing them a convenient way to play the lottery and support Texas education.”
The Rangers boasted the fourth-highest attendance in 2021 out of any MLB team. This is Jackpocket’s sixth major league sports partnership, adding to its roster of partnerships represented by the MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, and college athletics.
Jackpocket will receive live in-game advertising on the Rangers radio broadcast for every home game, as well as PA announcements and video board graphics and a sign located on the second level right field at Globe Life Field.
