TUCSON, Ariz. -- An unclaimed, $14.6 million The Pick ticket sold in Goodyear back in December means a bigger prize for non-jackpot winners!

The Arizona Lottery says it is boosting prizes from Wednesday, January 15th through Saturday, February 15th. That means your $3 prize becomes $6, your $50 prize becomes $100 and your $2,000 prize becomes $4,000.

" In addition to benefiting Court Appointed Special Advocates, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, the Victims’ Rights Fund and the Tribal Dual College Enrollment Fund, unclaimed prize money is used to enhance players’ experiences through new games, promotions and bigger prizes," says the Arizona Lottery.

“We are much happier when our winner's claim their prizes,” said Gregg Edgar, Arizona Lottery Executive Director. “But this is a great way to use unclaimed prize money to deliver benefit to The Pick players and we are pleased to return this money to them in a fun and exciting way."

The Pick drawings are held Wednesdays and Saturdays. Tickets are $1 and sold at more than 3,000 Arizona Lottery retailers.
