Jackpocket Headed To TV With ‘Blank Slate’ On Game Show Network

Jackpocket announced on Wednesday its first significant sweepstakes on the silver screen. The contest will air the newly premiered game show Blank Slate on Game Show Network.

Dubbed the Blank Slate Sweepstakes, the program is set to run from Feb. 5 through Feb. 23, giving a chance for viewers to win a $5,000 grand prize as the primary offering, according to the news release.

“Jackpocket is thrilled to join forces with Game Show Network to reach a new national television audience,” said Jackpocket’s founder and CEO Peter Sullivan. “We can’t wait to share this interactive experience with its loyal viewers.”

The details

The Game Show Network, which is distributed throughout the U.S., Caribbean and Canada by all major cable operators and other over-the-top providers, will air Jackpocket-sponsored “Watch and Enter” TV ads for the sweepstakes. The advertisements will tell viewers to tune in to Blank Slate Monday through Friday to receive a daily entry code. And then during the broadcast, there will be daily “Word Reveal” segments with unique codes, per Sullivan.

“Eligible Game Show Network viewers can enter the sweepstakes by visiting Jackpocket.com/GSN and inputting the applicable daily word code, earning a chance to win the grand prize. The more times a viewer enters the sweepstakes, the greater their chance of winning.”

Jackpocket’s continued growth

This move follows Jackpocket’s entry into the world of online casinos on Jan. 31. At that time the company became the first U.S.-based lottery platform to enter America’s iGaming market when Sullivan announced the opening of Jackpocket Casino in New Jersey in partnership with Caesars Interactive Gaming. The company will look to expand its casino operation into other states in the coming months.

Over the past year, Jackpocket has also launched its lottery app in multiple new jurisdictions like Arizona, Massachusetts, and Puerto Rico. Furthermore, Jackpocket has formed new partnerships with Gannett – the parent company of media outlet U.S.A. Today– and professional sports teams like the Boston Red Sox, with the expectation there will be more opportunities to come.
