PHOENIX (Feb. 20, 2018) – Arizona Lottery players now have an additional way to win thanks to a new category of games called Fast Play. Players won’t have to decide between purchasing a jackpot game or a Scratchers® ticket because Fast Play games print like a draw game and play like a Scratchers ticket.

Fast Play offers several games at varying price points, play styles and prize structures. This brand new category of game couples the simplicity of playing draw games with the instant gratification of Scratchers tickets.

“This instant experience allows our players to enjoy their two favorite game categories in one ticket,” said Executive Director of the Arizona Lottery Gregg Edgar. “We continuously look for innovative ways to elevate our players’ experience and we believe Fast Play will be a rewarding addition. We look forward to working directly with our players and retailers to welcome this new instant way to play.”

Fast Play features four games for players to choose from: Piggy Bank Bucks, Crazy 8s, Jackpot Party® Progressive and Cherry Twist Progressive. Along with high odds of winning, these tickets offer a combined prize pool of more than $12 million.

Similar to Scratchers tickets, the Fast Play games generate play symbols to determine if a ticket is an instant winner of one of more prizes. Additionally, players have the opportunity to win a progressive jackpot prize when they play Jackpot Party® Progressive and Cherry Twist Progressive. If the jackpot is not won, the games’ progressive jackpots increase each time a ticket is sold. When a lucky player hits the jackpot, the jackpot resets for that game.

“By offering an additional state game, the Arizona Lottery has an opportunity to further increase sales, which will create a significant impact on vital programs that serve Arizonans across the entire state,” said Edgar.

The Arizona Lottery will be hosting Fast Play launch events on Friday, March 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at two of our Arizona Lottery locations. The first 500 people to attend the Phoenix office at 4740 E. University Drive Phoenix, AZ 85034 and the first 200 people to attend the event at the Tucson office at 2900 E. Broadway Blvd, Suite 190, Tucson, AZ 85716 will get a free Fast Play ticket! Additionally, players will have the chance to play the new family of instant games, win cash prizes, and interact with special guests like the Cardinals’ Big Red and the Diamondbacks’ Baxter and more.

Fast Play is now available for purchase at the counter at all Arizona Lottery retailers.
