Frequently Asked Questions
Q: CAN ORGANIZATIONS BUY INSTANT TAB TICKETS FROM ANY SUPPLIER THEY CHOOSE?
A: Retailers must purchase tickets from the Arizona Lottery. Only the games authorized for sale by the Lottery’s charitable retailers will carry the Arizona Lottery logo.

Q: WILL THERE BE A VARIETY OF GAMES TO CHOOSE FROM?
A: There will be a minimum of six games, priced at 25¢, 50¢, $1, and $2.

Q: HOW WILL ORGANIZATIONS ORDER TICKETS?
A: American Games Inc. is the authorized distributor of Arizona Lottery instant tab tickets. Retailers will be contacted on a regular basis to order tickets. Orders may also by placed by phone (1-866-785-5822) or by accessing the website: www.arizonatabs.com.

Q: HOW DO I KNOW WHICH PRIZES I HAVE TO PAY?
A: Each winning ticket will have the prize amount behind a tab, and the winning symbols will have an arrow through them. Each deal (set) of tickets has a serial number. You will receive a flare card to post that states the serial number. A retailer only pays prizes from a ticket with a serial number from one of its deals. To make sure you don’t have to deal with a lot of old serial numbers, the rules provide that a player must redeem their prizes on the business day of purchase, which extends to your closing time if it is after midnight.

Q: HOW DO I DISPENSE THESE GAMES?
A: You can sell the games from a container like a jar or a bowl, or you can sell them from a vending machine. The Lottery does not provide vending machines. If you decide you want one, they are available for purchase or lease from a number of companies. The Lottery recommends that you do some comparison shopping if you decide to buy or lease a vending machine. Please note that vending machines should dispense tickets only.
