PHOENIX – A multi-draw ticket sold in Glendale, Arizona, on May 27th matched all six numbers in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing, winning the 11th largest jackpot in the game’s history and the largest single payout to any Arizona Lottery player ever!
“We are excited to see this ray of Arizona sunshine as we celebrate our first-ever Mega Millions jackpot winner,” said Gregg Edgar, Arizona Lottery Executive Director. “This is a life-changing moment for this lucky winner and it also means millions of dollars to our state’s economy, to this winner’s community, and, to the vital programs and services funded by Arizona Lottery ticket sales.”
The $410 million winning ticket was sold at a Circle K located at 20203 N. 67th Ave in Glendale and may be paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years if taken as an annuity. The winner may also choose a cash payment for a lump-sum of $316.8 million.

The Circle K retailer will also receive a $50,000 bonus from the Arizona Lottery for selling the winning ticket
Arizona Lottery ticket sales fund more than a dozen vital programs across the state, including health, housing and job assistance for the homeless; support for Arizona’s foster children; funding to nurture and grow our state’s economy in a pandemic-challenged environment; and monies to augment efforts to preserve and protect Arizona’s iconic wildlife and habitats.
