State officials want you to know if using the new Jackpocket app, which allows users to buy lottery tickets from any location – your social security number isn’t necessary.
News10NBC recently featured a Good Question from their daily segment, in which a person posed that very question: If you sign up to use the app, do you need to provide a social security number?
The short answer is ‘no’.
They noted that if a person hits it big and wins a large amount – they might have to provide a social security number, but it’s not part of the entry process to use the app.
