In the event all Prizewinners and initial alternates are disqualified, additional alternates will be selected from the same pool of entrants used for the Drawing until all prizes have been awarded.
- Prizewinners’ names shall be posted on the Lottery website as soon as possible following the drawing, and shall be notified via email and/or phone by the Lottery or its designee within seven (7) calendar days after the Drawing. The Prizewinner list is subject to change based on verification of the Prizewinners by the Lottery.
- Prizewinners shall be randomly selected from all valid Website and Mobile App entries received for each drawing.
- The drawings will be conducted by Pollard Banknote Limited at their offices at 1499 Buffalo Place, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The drawing location may change at the discretion of the Lottery.
- A player is eligible to win only one (1) prize per Drawing.
- The prizes and corresponding prize levels for each Drawing are as follows:
Drawing 1 Drawing 2 Drawing 3 Drawing 4 Prize Level Prize # of Winners # of Winners # of Winners # of Winners 1 $1,000 x Temp* 1 1 1 1 2 $100 x Temp* 1 1 1 1 3 $10 x Temp* 1 1 1 1
- The odds of winning vary, based on the total number of entries received for a Drawing and the total number of entries a player submits.
Entry Eligibility Requirements
- All Drawing entries are subject to validation by the Lottery or its designee and may be disqualified if eligibility requirements are not met.
- A player must be located within the borders of the state of Arizona when entering the Promotion.
- A player must be twenty-one (21) years of age or older to purchase a Game Ticket and enter the Promotion.
- Tickets determined to be in a stolen/missing inventory status or not part of any inventory status that is valid, sold, activated, or promotional will be disqualified.

- A.R.S. § 5-573 requires winners of a prize valued at $600 or more to be checked to determine if that winner owes money to certain State of Arizona entities. In such case, established procedures will be followed.
- A "Related Person" is ineligible to receive prizes under A.R.S. § 5-567. A Related Person is defined as an officer or employee of the Arizona Lottery; an officer or employee of any person contracting with the Arizona Lottery to supply gaming equipment or lottery tickets, advertising or consulting services or to draw or otherwise select winning tickets or shares if the officer or employee is involved in the direct provision of goods and services to the Arizona Lottery or has access to information made confidential by the Arizona Lottery; and any spouse, child, sibling, or parent residing as a member of the same household in the principal place of residence of a person described above.
Use of Personal Information
- A player is required to be twenty-one (21) years of age or older to provide information that will be collected on the Website.
- By submitting a drawing entry on the Website or via the Mobile App, a player gives the Arizona Lottery permission to announce and publish the player's name, city and state for marketing/promotional purposes if the player wins a prize. Because a second chance drawing is exclusively used as a promotional event, a person who participates in a second chance drawing is deemed to have voluntarily waived the right under A.R.S. § 5-573(D) to keep his or her name confidential for ninety (90) days after winning a prize. A player who does not want to consent to immediate release of his or her name as a winner should not participate in this promotion, will be ineligible to receive a prize in a second chance drawing, and will be disqualified if chosen as a winner, resulting in selection of an alternate winner.
- Prizewinners must provide their correct name and address. For prizes of $600 or more, Prizewinners must complete a Winner Claim Form, provide their taxpayer ID (typically their social security number), provide a form of government-issued photo identification, and pass all validation checks prior to claiming their prize. The Arizona Lottery will report such wins to the applicable tax authorities. Each Prizewinner is responsible for his or her state, federal, and/or local taxes.
- Prizewinners must claim their prize within seven (7) calendar days from the prize winner notification date by the Arizona Lottery. If all reasonable efforts to locate a Prizewinner fail within the seven (7) calendar-day period, the Arizona Lottery may select a replacement winner as previously described.
- Approximately one hundred eighty (180) days after the completion of the Promotion, all non-winning, non-selected and/or ineligible entries shall be deleted.
- The Arizona Lottery reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify these Official Rules without materially affecting the terms and conditions of the Promotion. The Arizona Lottery reserves the right to modify, cancel, postpone, delay, suspend, and/or terminate this Promotion, in whole or in part, in the event that the Promotion is not capable of running as planned or as intended by these Official Rules, by reason of any technical or other disabling causes, or other causes that impair, corrupt, or interrupt the administration, fairness, security, integrity, or proper play of the Promotion, including, without limitation, hurricane, fire, flood, epidemic, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, war, terrorist threat, or activity or insurrection. In such event, the Arizona Lottery may, in its sole discretion: (a) postpone and/or reschedule and/or modify the Promotion, or (b) cancel the Promotion in its entirety. In the event of cancellation, the Arizona Lottery shall award the prizes through a process deemed fair and equitable by the Arizona Lottery, in its sole discretion, and the Arizona Lottery and its administrators shall have no further liability to any participant in connection with the Promotion. In no event will the Arizona Lottery be obligated to award more prizes than the number of prizes stated in these Official Rules.
- Whether caused by a player, equipment, or programming associated with or utilized in this Promotion, or by any technical or human error that may occur in the processing of entries, the Arizona Lottery, Pollard Banknote Limited are not responsible for inaccurate entry information or errors that may occur in the processing of the Promotion that may be the result of: (a) error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, communications line failure, theft or destruction or unauthorized access to, or alteration of, entries; or (b) lost, misdirected, late, incomplete, corrupted, illegible, or unintelligible entries. Corrupted, illegible, unintelligible, or incomplete entries are void.
- The Arizona Lottery reserves the right to substitute prizes with similar merchandise of equal or greater value. No prize substitution, cash equivalent, or transfer of prize by a winner in violation of these Official Rules is permitted. By accepting a prize, a player agrees to release the Arizona Lottery and Pollard Banknote Limited from, and shall hold them harmless against, any liability, loss, claims, injury, or damage to property or to person, including death, due in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, by reason of the acceptance, possession, use or misuse of the prizes or participation in this Promotion, even if caused or contributed to by the negligence of the Arizona Lottery and Pollard Banknote Limited.
- This Promotion is governed by laws and regulations of the State of Arizona, and all players hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the State of Arizona for resolution of all claims and disputes through administrative hearing, and any right to a trial by jury is hereby waived. Any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Promotion or any prize awarded are governed by Arizona Administrative Code ("A.A.C.") § R19-3-1008.
