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. It also resulted in a windfall for a deserving charity in Arizona.
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. Circle K retailer will also receive a $50,000 bonus from the Arizona Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
Circle K donated their sales bonus to United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Central Arizona. UCP is Circle K’s primary non-profit partner and the lottery has supported efforts with Circle K and UCP in the past.
“The Arizona Lottery exists to do more good in our community and we leap at every opportunity that we can to assist organizations across Arizona with that same mission,” said Arizona Lottery Executive Director Gregg Edgar. “These are challenging times for organizations like United Cerebral Palsy and the Arizona Lottery saw this as an innovative way to help meet that challenge, and Circle K generously agreed. It is so wonderful to work with great organizations like Circle K and UCP to have an impact for Arizona.”
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.
