Overview

JackPot.com: forecasted as the next unicorn in AltaIR’s portfolio



Jackpot.com disrupts the lottery industry, allowing customers to participate in global jackpots that are backed by an Insurance Linked Security structure.
Jackpot.com lets you play lotteries from all around the world — lotteries you previously couldn’t access. It offers the US Powerball, the Euromillions and many others with the biggest jackpots. But instead of operating as a lottery agency, Jackpot.com operates more like a bookmaker, taking “bets” on the outcome of the numbers drawn. It is covered by an insurance policy, so if the jackpot is won, Jackpot collects an insurance payout — and in turn, pays players.

25+ lotteries with the largest jackpots all over the world!

Product

  • Users bet on lottery results for over 25 global lotteries.
  • Licensed by Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), UK Gambling Commission and the Republic of Ireland National Excise License Office.
  • Winnings are paid by issuing an ILS (Insurance Linked Security).
  • Available anytime, anywhere on mobile and PC
  • Online lottery betting is not the same as buying a physical lotto ticket. Instead, the customer places a bet on the outcome of an official lottery, and this bet is managed by Jackpot.com. Any money that the customer wins is paid out by Jackpot.com directly.
  • 7 languages.

Market

  • Lottery is a $300B market globally (7.6% growth), while offline market dominates (95% share).
  • Sales of state lotteries in US reached $73.9B in 2015 (4% CAGR for last 6 years). European lottery market is $116B and Chinese is $55B and Russian $300M.
  • 57% of Americans reported buying tickets in the last 12 months. 70% of population play lotteries in France, 40% in Finland, 29% in China and only 6% in Russia.
  • There are 1-3 lotteries in each developed country, 2 all-European lotteries and 50 state US lotteries.
  • The main barrier is limited access to global lotteries (due to regulation and offline sales). In US lotteries are allowed to be sold online in 2011. But states are reluctant to allow online sales to protect under-18-s. Only two states, Illinois and Georgia, are selling Powerball tickets online.
