Arizona Game and Fish to Install Arizona Lottery Vending Machines

Exclusive Partnership at Two Arizona Game & Fish Locations to sell

Arizona Lottery Games

 PHOENIX (September 12, 2017) – The Arizona Lottery and the Arizona Game and Fish Department are expanding their relationship by installing Lottery vending machines at two Arizona Game and Fish locations. The new program between the two state agencies will begin on September 5, 2017. 

 “Arizona Lottery has given more than $259 million to Arizona Game and Fish since 1991 to protect Arizona’s unique landscape and wildlife and we are thrilled to build on our relationship,” Executive Director of the Arizona Lottery Gregg Edgar said. “We are always looking for creative ways to expand our partnerships and serve our players. Installing vending machines at Game and Fish gives our players another opportunity to enjoy the fun and excitement of the lottery.

 “Since voters approved creation of the Heritage Fund in 1990, which dedicates a portion of lottery ticket proceeds to the Arizona Game and Fish Department, the fund has greatly benefited our wildlife conservation, public access and environmental education efforts, as well as outdoor recreation and the state’s economy,” said Arizona Game and Fish Director Ty Gray. “Because our agency receives no general fund tax dollars to cover our operating budget, the Heritage Fund is critical to helping recover or sustain Arizona’s unique native wildlife.”

 Arizona Lottery players and Game and Fish visitors will find the vending machines at the Phoenix Game and Fish information center at 5000 W. Carefree Highway Phoenix, AZ 85086 as well as the Ben Avery Shooting Facility at 4044 W Black Canyon Blvd, Phoenix, AZ 85086.

 Both locations will receive the newly updated Gemini Ultra vending machines. These machines are updated with new features to streamline the customer experience. The vending machines require age verification through scanning a valid photo identification card or driver’s license, and the machines accept cash only and will not make change or pay out prizes. Arizona Game and Fish will not be able to make change or pay out prizes. 

In addition to its new partnership, the Arizona Lottery will launch an exclusively branded Arizona Game and Fish Scratchers® ticket in December. The $2 instant scratch ticket will give players the opportunity to win cash prizes ranging from $2 to $10,000 as well as exciting second chance prizes including hunting and fishing gear. 

Scratchers® is a registered service mark of the California Lottery.
