About the Arizona Lottery

The Grand Canyon State’s lottery was established in 1981. Its first sale occurred on July 1st, with the purchase of an Arizona Lottery scratch ticket. Since then, it’s been extended multiple times, with the most recent vote in 2010 permitting it to operate until 2035. The Arizona Lottery Mega Millions and Powerball attract the most players, but other games like Pick 3, Fantasy 5, Triple Twist, and The Pick are popular, too. The latter boasts a $1 million starting jackpot for as little as $1 a ticket. In addition, there are countless scratch card games, known as Scratchers. These sometimes come with unique prizes like cruises, game shows, and even hot air balloon trips.

Dozens of Arizona State Lottery winners have been produced throughout its existence, including a few multi-millionaires. In June 2020, a mystery player became the first Mega Millions jackpot winner in Arizona. The prize was a staggering $410 million, which is also the highest win in the lottery’s history. 

The lottery in Arizona generates almost $4 million weekly. It uses some of this revenue to fund numerous public sector programs. These include arts and education, economic development, community enrichment, health and human services, public safety, and environmental conservation.
