PHOENIX - Arizona's own jackpot game, The Pick, has climbed to $6.3 million for Saturday night's draw, the game's largest jackpot since March 2012.
"It is thrilling to watch The Pick jackpot climb, since it is Arizona's own jackpot game," said Karen Bach, director of budget, products, and communications for the Arizona Lottery. "It's exciting to know that the winning ticket can only be sold in Arizona."
Since the jackpot started rolling Nov. 4, 2012, there have been more than 7.1 million in prizes in Arizona. Just last week alone, there were more than 23,000 winners of The Pick in Arizona.
The Pick costs $1 per ticket, and players choose six numbers, 1 through 44. Players win a prize for matching a minimum of three numbers. Ticket sales stop at 9:30 p.m. the night of the draw. Players can check the winning numbers here.
