Mesa Couple Claims $1.1 Million The Pick™ Winning Ticket

Tuesday, March 24, 2015 - 10:45am

PHOENIX (March 23, 2015)– The Arizona Lottery announces that a $1.1 million The Pick winning ticket sold in Heber, Arizona from the drawing on Saturday, March 21, has been claimed.

Ricky and Connie Ferguson were enjoying a visit to Heber this past weekend. The couple was concerned they would get home too late to purchase their ticket for the Saturday drawing.  They decided to play The Pick game before leaving Heber and purchased a ticket using Connie’s own numbers. The couple was the only winner of the $1.1 million The Pick jackpot.

The winning ticket was purchased at a Lottery retailer located at 1581 Mainline Road in Heber. After speaking to a financial advisor, the Fergusons selected the $718,954.20 before taxes cash option. After paying off some bills, they plan to continue working and invest the money for their future.

“We love presenting prize checks to Arizona winners,” said Tony Bouie, executive director of the Arizona Lottery. “Seeing the smiles on their faces is so satisfying, knowing it will have a big impact on their lives.”

The winning ticket matched all six numbers drawn. The winning numbers were 01-02-09-27-37-40, and the prize was claimed at the Arizona Lottery office in Phoenix.

The Pick offers many appealing features to players, including four ways to win a cash prize. The starting jackpot is $1 million, and the second prize for matching five of the six drawn numbers, is $2,000.

The next drawing for The Pick will be held Wednesday, March 25, for an estimated $1 million jackpot. Tickets can be purchased at any Arizona Lottery retailer.

Players must be 21 years or older to purchase or redeem tickets. Winners have 180 days from the drawing date to claim their prize at an Arizona Lottery office or by mail. Overall odds vary by game.

Arizona Joins 13 Other States For New MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB™ Multi-State Lottery Scratch Ticket Game

Monday, March 23, 2015 - 11:15am

 March Premiere Date Set for Nationally Syndicated Companion TV Show

Two New Millionaires Minted in First Week of Series Production 

{Phoenix, AZ} – March 19, 2015 –– “MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB,” the first-of-its kind television game show will launch a new multi-state companion lottery scratch ticket in Arizona joining 13 other states in the new game. The new MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB lottery scratch ticket created by Scientific Games under license from Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) will debut in Arizona on April 7 just in time for the new premiere date of “MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB” television show on 3TV KTVK in Phoenix on Saturday, March 28, and FOX 11 KMSB in Tucson on Sunday, March 29 (check local listings for time).

The “MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB” television game show is hosted by actor, comedian and television star Billy Gardell (“Mike & Molly,” “You, Me and Dupree”), and co-hosted by Todd Newton (“Family Game Night,” “Hollywood Showdown”).

"This lottery scratch game captures the essence and fun of the ‘MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB’ television game show that has already started production in Las Vegas,” said Steve Saferin, president of properties group and chief creative officer for Scientific Games. “The studio audience reaction to the show has been wildly enthusiastic, and there’s no better way to celebrate the 80th anniversary of MONOPOLY™ than to give fans of the game yet another way to play."

Scientific Games Productions recently kicked off production on “MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB” at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas inside a custom-built, 48,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art structure. Gardell stood atop the multi-million dollar LED floor displaying the iconic MONOPOLY board before an audience of winners from participating state lotteries, and guided contestants through their journey to possibly win $1 million.

During the first week of production, the show had its first two $1 million winners and awarded a grand total of over $3.5 million in cash and prizes.

“I’ve never seen anything like watching these contestants win this life-changing amount of money,” said Gardell. “It is hands-down one of the best experiences I’ve had in my career.”

"In my 20 years of producing TV game shows, this is definitely the most overwhelming response from an audience based on how quickly two new millionaires were minted during these tapings,” said Scott St. John, executive producer. “No other show I’ve produced - or seen - has ever given away this much prize money this quickly.”

“Scratch games are very popular with Arizona Lottery players,” said Tony Bouie, executive director of the Arizona Lottery. “Nothing makes us happier than providing an opportunity to generate more Arizona winners.”

With a live studio audience made up of the winners and their guests, totaling almost 400 people each day, including ten winners from Arizona, contestants were selected at random from the registered trip winners to play a series of games, each offering cash and other prizes, with a total value of up to $2.5 million per episode. The final round offers a single lucky contestant a shot at a $1 million prize. Plus, each section of the audience shares in their contestant’s winnings from the show. Gardell and local segment game host Todd Newton led contestant play in games such as Community Chest, Ride the Rails and Electric Company, and between the national and local show segments, handed out cash and prizes worth over $3.5 million during the first week of production.

With the launch of the new scratch ticket, Arizona players can try and qualify to win a four-night, five-day trip for two to Las Vegas with accommodations at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, and the chance to compete on the game show by registering their MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB lottery scratch tickets online at www.playmmc.com to build MONOPOLY-themed Lottery Property Sets that earn them entries into a random drawing to participate.
