Brooklyn Nursing Student Wins $1M Lottery Prize With Jackpocket
NEW YORK, Aug. 29, 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 sixth millionaire winner in New York state: a 26-year-old nursing student in Brooklyn who won $1 million after using the app to order $10 worth of Cash4Life lottery tickets on her phone.
One of her Quick Picks matched the first 5 numbers drawn in the July 6 drawing, winning her the $1,000 a week for life prize or a minimum $1 million payout.
It was the first time she had ever played Cash4Life. She didn't even realize she won until Jackpocket called her to congratulate her. Though Jackpocket players are notified automatically when they win, she hadn't checked her emails and was more than surprised to get the news.
"I was freaking out," she said, describing her feelings when she got the call and then checked her ticket on the app.
"I called my mom, and she's like, 'Are you serious?! You better make sure this is not a scam.' I said, 'Mom, I just went on my Jackpocket account and my win is on there.'"
