Note from Editor & rsquo: This article has been updated to reflect the fact that the Arizona Lottery also offers prize redemption.

After an failure at 11:50 a.m. on January 19, Arizona Lottery will resume selling nationwide lottery tickets. Even up is the reward redemption.

According to a news release from the Arizona Lottery, the state lottery officials and Scientific Games are working to resume ticket sales after an outage that halted game sales and prize redemptions.

The operator of the game system, Scientific Games, collaborates closely with the AZ drawing team.

Arizona Lottery executive director Gregg Edgar said in the release:

We apologise to the lottery players, retailer partners, and beneficiary community of lottery & rsquo. Our operations depend on maintaining the integrity of the Lottery & rsquo games. While keeping our people, shops, and participants in mind, we are working hard to get our game up online as quickly and consistently as possible. & rdquo,

What led to the Arizona Lottery’s closure?

A system update and the installation of two new lottery games led to the system’s crash, according to Scientific Games’ preliminary investigation.

Any lottery tickets bought before the outage are still valid. Lottery tickets that reach their 180-day expiration date over the outage window will be honored at the Arizona Lottery offices.

Players are being informed of this situation electronically, at customer service, and on social media by the Arizona Lottery. For the most recent information on the Arizona Lottery condition, keep an eye on PlayInAZ.
