 PHOENIX (Sept. 5, 2019) – The Arizona Lottery and Arizona Cardinals are kicking off the season with a huge first: Lottery vending machines will be up and running, selling the full line of instant and draw games inside of State Farm Stadium, beginning at the team’s regular season opener on Sunday, Sept. 8. This is the latest and greatest development in the Lottery’s 20-plus year history with the team, resulting in their becoming one of 3,000 lottery retail locations across the state.

 The excitement does not stop with vending machines. The Arizona Lottery Street Team will be activating at each vending machine at every Cardinals’ home game, with a chance for players to win 2020 season tickets.

 Arizona Cardinals fans now join Arizona Diamondbacks fans, who already enjoy the playing Arizona Lottery games in the comfort of their seats at Chase Field.
