PHOENIX (Nov. 3, 2009) — The fourth of 10 available $1 million top prizes in the Arizona Lottery’s $100 Million Cash Spectacular Scratchers game has been won.
Patricia A. Cohen of Rockville, Md., purchased the winning ticket at the Valero at 2011 S. Ellsworth Road in Mesa. After scratching it off at the store, Cohen and her son checked the ticket multiple times to make sure it was a winner. She immediately signed her name on the ticket and put it in a safe.
Cohen said she intends to share the winnings with her family.
Launched in January, Cash Spectacular boasts more than $100 million in cash prizes — including 10 $1 million grand prizes. There are more than 391,000 prizes from $50 to $500, and more than 5,400 prizes from $1,000 to $50,000. In total, there are more than 4.8 million prizes ranging from $10 to $1 million.
There are now six $1 million top prizes remaining.
“It’s not every day that we have a $1 million prize winner walk through our doors, but that’s exactly what has happened,” said Jeff Hatch-Miller, executive director for the Arizona Lottery. “We still have six $1 million top prizes remaining for our Cash Spectacular game and look forward to ushering in those new millionaires when they come to our office to claim their prize.”
The $10 Scratchers tickets are available at retailers where Lottery tickets are sold. You must be at least 21 to purchase or redeem tickets. The Arizona Lottery reminds everyone to please play responsibly.
