PHOENIX (August 9, 2018) – The excitement is growing for Arizona Lottery players with the rolling jackpot in the Pick game nearing record territory, now at $9.4 million for the Saturday (Aug 11) drawing, one of the largest in the game’s history!  If no one wins that jackpot it will grow to $9.8 million for the Wednesday, August 8/15, draw.

This comes on the heels of our record-breaking 2018 Fiscal Year, where combined sales from instant-win and draw games totaled $981 million with $210 million benefitting more than a dozen vital programs and services.  These include: the Arizona Game and Fish Department, through the Heritage Fund; the Internet Crimes Against Children Fund (ICAC); and the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Arizona (CASA). Additionally, lottery revenue generated more than $65 million in retailer commissions across the state.

The Pick is Arizona’s very own lottery draw game, with a rich history of making players winners and building a better state by funding programs helping foster kids, saving the Bald Eagle, and so much more.  Pick players also have much better odds of winning than those playing massive multi-state lotteries: 1 in 7,059,052. This is helping to put the Arizona Lottery on a path to meet or exceed our goals of $1 billion in annual sales and $250 million in annual return to beneficiaries in 2020.
