PHOENIX (May 31, 2017) – Draw game jackpots are on a roll and Arizona Lottery players can win big with the largest The Pick jackpot of 2017 at $3 million! In addition, the Powerball jackpot has climbed to $302 million!

“It is always an exciting time for our players when we have multiple jackpots rolling,” said Gregg Edgar, Executive Director of the Arizona Lottery. “This is the highest we have seen The Pick jackpot in 2017, so in addition to the rolling Powerball jackpot this is a great opportunity for our players to win big. These large jackpots help drive sales and therefore, positively impact proceeds benefitting programs and services that serve Arizona.”

Not only do Arizona players have the chance to win two big jackpots, but they can also win any cash prize ranging from $1 to $1 million playing Powerball. One lucky Arizona player won $1 million from Saturday’s draw at a QuikTrip in Glendale. The prize has yet to be claimed.

Additionally, over 30,000 Arizona players won cash prizes playing The Pick and Powerball on Saturday!

With the largest The Pick jackpot in 2017, Arizona players have a one in 39 chance of winning a cash prize and a one in 7 million chance of winning the jackpot! If a lucky Arizonan wins on Wednesday night, they have the option of taking the $3 million over a 30-year annuity or a one-time cash payment of approximately $1.5 million.

Proceeds from all Arizona Lottery ticket sales benefit organizations statewide that focus on four main pillars, including Education, Health and Human Services, Economic Development and Environmental Conservation.

To be eligible for Wednesday night’s drawing, players must purchase their tickets by 6:59 p.m. Arizona time. The Arizona Lottery advises players to sign their tickets immediately and check them as soon as possible to avoid missing out on any prizes they may have won.
