Leadership

Dear Players,

As a proud Arizona native, I recognize the impact of giving back to support communities across our state. With the help of players like you, the Arizona Lottery has invested more than $5.2 Billion in support of critical programs and infrastructure that we all count on as Arizonans. From our schools and roads to child welfare and preserving our state’s natural beauty, Arizona Lottery has made Arizona stronger and more resilient. 

Our players make a difference in Arizona with every game they play. In fact, your patronage is an investment in our state’s economy, supporting our network of 3,000 independent and corporate retailers who serve as an important economic engine for Arizona.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to lead the Arizona Lottery and thank you for your continued support.

Alec Esteban Thomson
