Arizona became the first state west of the Mississippi to approve a lottery when the statewide public initiative passed in November 1980, with the Arizona Lottery officially launched in 1981.
In 2002, a vote to extend the lottery for another 10 years was passed, with 73% in favor. In 2010, the lottery was extended into 2035. Arizona partnered with the Powerball draws in 1994, and Mega Millions followed in 2010. Since then, the state has had multiple Powerball jackpot winners.
The most popular games in the state are the two national lotteries, Powerball and Mega Millions. Another popular Arizona State Lottery game is The Pick, which launched in 1984 and has a jackpot that starts at $1 million for just $1 a ticket. Apart from that, there are several small jackpot games on offer, including Pick 3, Triple Twist, and Fantasy 5.
In Arizona, players must be 21 years or older to play the lottery. Lottery tickets may only be purchased at registered retailers and winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to redeem their prizes.
The Arizona Lottery contributes hundreds of millions of dollars from ticket sales into programs and organizations that help the community with over $4 billion already donated to a variety of state projects, including homeless shelters and the state's general fund.
