"We love to see so many Arizonans from so many different parts of our state win so much money,” Executive Director of the Arizona Lottery Gregg Edgar said. “When Arizona Lottery players win, our whole state wins!"
And it’s not just our players who are winning big. Arizona Lottery retailers took home another $105,000 in bonus payments for selling all these big winners. It’s just another way the Arizona Lottery is helping to drive our economy and do more good in our state.
Arizona Lottery ticket sales fund more than a dozen vital programs, including higher education infrastructure built and maintained by the Board of Regents, habitat purchased through the Heritage Fund to protect and promote our unique and iconic wildlife, and the Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, speaking in court for abused and neglected children. These are just a few of the 18 beneficiaries that receive hundreds of millions of Lottery dollars every year.
