AZGS is first Arizona state agency to sell lottery tickets

The Arizona Geological Survey began selling Arizona Lottery tickets today in our Arizona Experience store in Tucson.  Apparently, we are the first state agency in Arizona to sell lottery tickets. I had the honor of purchasing the first Powerball ticket from the newly installed system today [right].

We will get a small commission off the sale of each ticket, plus a bonus when a winning ticket is sold in the store.

Since 1981, Arizona beneficiaries have received over $2.8 billion from the lottery, and vendors selling tickets have gotten over $500 million.    Arizonans have won over $5 billion.
