PHOENIX (July 22, 2009) — A Mesa resident has a reason to celebrate after winning the Pick 5 jackpot from Saturday’s drawing.
Mychal Thompson purchased his winning ticket at the Kwik Mart at 606 W. Broadway Road in Tempe. Thompson matched all five numbers — 10, 15, 17, 18 and 33 — to win $226,000, the third highest Pick 5 jackpot this year.
“Many of our Pick 5 players use their favorite numbers every time they play. Mr. Thompson chose the Quick Pick option, where the numbers were automatically selected for him,” said Jeff Hatch-Miller, the Arizona Lottery’s executive director. “I’m sure he’s going to consider those his favorite ‘lucky’ numbers from now on!”
Because the top prize was hit, the jackpot returned to $50,000 for Monday’s drawing and will continue to grow until it is hit again.
Players can check their numbers by logging onto arizonalottery.com or by calling the winning numbers hotlines at 480-829-PICK in Phoenix and 1-800-499-3798 in all other Arizona areas.
