Lottery to boost prizing for Players Club and The Pick through June 30th
PHOENIX (June 3, 2020) – The Arizona Lottery is rolling the prize fund between now and the end of June by offering more than $4 Million in new promotional cash prizes. Players can get in on the action by downloading the Players Club mobile app, or, by playing The Pick.
The new cash prizes are available to players who enter non-winning tickets in two popular Arizona Lottery Players Club promotions currently underway.
- The annual Million Dollar Giveaway is extended to June 15th and will now offer four new $250,000 prizes plus one new additional $1 Million top prize.
- An additional drawing is being added to the Bingo Crossword promotion, to include four $500,000 bonus prizes, totaling $2 Million!
The prize money is also being used to double all non-jackpot prizes for The Pick – a popular Arizona-based draw game. The Arizona Lottery activated a similar promotion back in January that proved to be a big success. For players of The Pick, this means that from Wednesday, May 27th through Saturday, June 27th, a $3 prize becomes $6, a $50 prize becomes $100 and a $2,000 prize becomes $4,000!
The Arizona Lottery is able to offer more cash prizes to players as a result of an unclaimed The Pick jackpot prize that expired last December. “This is a great opportunity to bring even more winning experiences to our players,” said Gregg Edgar, Arizona Lottery Executive Director. “Boosting the prizes available through these exciting promotions is a great way to raise the stakes – making our games more rewarding and exciting to play while continuing to return much-needed revenue to our beneficiaries in these difficult times.”
Arizona Lottery ticket sales fund more than a dozen vital programs across the state, including health, housing, and job assistance for the homeless; support for Arizona’s foster children; funding to nurture and grow our state’s economy in a pandemic-challenged environment; and monies to augment efforts to preserve and protect Arizona’s iconic wildlife and habitats at a time of reduced recreation and visitation. These are just a few of the 18 beneficiaries that receive hundreds of millions of Arizona Lottery dollars every year.
The official Arizona Lottery Players Club app (available free on iTunes® and Google Play™) offers our players a quick and convenient way to manually enter or scan eligible non-winning tickets to take part in our exciting promotions and win valuable prizes.
The Pick draws Wednesdays and Saturdays. Tickets are $1 and sold at all 3,000+ Arizona Lottery retailers. The prize-doubling feature does not apply to EXTRA!, a separate game that can be added to The Pick tickets.
