Arizona’s Biggest Summer Blockbuster Sees First Big Giveaway Winners

Two Women – one from Bullhead City and one from Tucson -  win six-figure prizes in “Beat the Heat Giveaway” . The higher the mercury climbs, the higher the prizes rise!

PHOENIX (July 19, 2019) – With two weeks of sweltering triple-digit temperatures behind us down and two more to go, Arizona Lottery players are feeling the heat and loving it as they play the Lottery’s month-long “Beat the Heat Giveaway” second-chance promotion and watching the weather report while temperatures, and prizes, soar.

Kimberly English, of Tucson, won the first week’s top prize of $110,000 and Magda Cruz Avitia of Bullhead City saw her second chance prize in the promotion’s second week rocket to $114,000 - $1,000 times that week’s high temperature. And the next week could be even hotter and the prizes even higher!

Watch our summer blockbuster commercial here.

A host of heat-themed Scratchers® and a Fast Play™ ticket, ranging from $1 to $10, give players a chance to win top prizes of up to $100,000. With two weekly drawings completed, two weekly drawings remain to award three winners either $10X, $100X or $1,000X the highest temperature recorded in each week of the promotion (July 1 – July 31).  So if this week’s high is 110 degrees, the second chance prizes will be $1,100, $11,000 and a sizzling $110,000! 

Here’s how it works: Lottery players can enter their eligible, non-winning tickets into the Beat the Heat Giveaway by visiting AZPlayersClub.com, or by scanning their tickets using the Arizona Lottery Players Club mobile app (available for download on the iTunes® App store and the Google Play™ store) for a chance to win. $1 tickets will receive one entry into the promotion, $2 tickets will receive two entries, $5 tickets will receive five entries and $10 tickets will receive ten entries.

“Our Beat the Heat Giveaway is a fun and exciting way for our players to find the silver lining in Arizona’s triple-digit Summer temperatures,” Executive Director of the Arizona Lottery Gregg Edgar said. “The Arizona Lottery is always looking for new ways enhance our players’ experience with our games and Beat the Heat is giving them another reason to watch the weather report. With weekly second chance prizes of up to $1,000 times the recorded high temperature each week of the promotion, it makes you glad we did not adopt the metric system!”

Arizona Lottery players can purchase Scratchers and Fast Play tickets that are eligible for the Beat the Heat Giveaway, as well as all other Arizona Lottery products, at all 3,000+ Arizona Lottery retail locations.
