The film's producer, Khurram Riaz, described the film as "a musical comedy that revolves around a lottery ticket that lands itself in one character's coat.
"From there on it travels from Pakistan to Phuket, Thailand and back again to Pakistan, and with it travel other characters running after the lottery, from one country to another. That's why the name is Jackpot," he said.
The film was shot partly in Thailand, including Coral and James Bond islands — which is a first for a Pakistani film, according to Riaz.
Team Jackpot has roped in Indian cinematographer Anubhav Bansal and Shoaib Khan for direction. It has been written by Babar Kashmiri, the music director is Naveed Nashad and choreographer Sonu Dangerous.
The cast includes Javed Sheikh, Noor Hassan, Sanam Chaudhry, Inayat Khan, Reyhana Malhotra (India), Adnan Shah (Tipu), Sana Fukher, Faiza Khan, Sajan Abbas and Ismail Tara.
The film releases July 6.
