HOW TO PLAY THE PICK

What is The Pick?

The Pick is Arizona’s own draw game where the goal is to match your numbers on your ticket with the numbers selected in the drawing to win a prize. There are four ways to win!

Ticket Price: $1

Drawings: Wednesdays, Saturdays

 

What is EXTRA!?

EXTRA! is a separate game that can be added onto your The Pick ticket and can be played instantly. Playing a $1 EXTRA! gives you a chance to win $250, and playing a $2 EXTRA! gives you a chance to win $500.

By playing, you will receive six EXTRA! numbers on your ticket and if any of them match your numbers for The Pick, you win the prize amount shown next to the matched EXTRA! number. If you match more than one number, you win the prize amount for each one of those matches as well.

Additional Cost: $1 or $2 per game

Applies To: All prizes

Find an Arizona Lottery retailer. The Pick tickets costs $1 per game and are available for purchase* at the counter of Arizona Lottery Retailers and at Arizona Lottery vending machines. Tickets cannot be purchased online.

How to Choose Your Numbers

There are two ways to choose numbers:

To let the computer select the numbers for you, choose a Quick Pick on the vending machine or tell the cashier you want a Quick Pick at the time of your purchase.
