PHOENIX – Arizona’s $473.1 million Powerball jackpot rightfully got all the attention, but it wasn’t the state’s only multimillion-dollar lottery win Wednesday night.

A ticket for The Pick sold at the Safeway at Guadalupe and Alma School roads in Mesa is worth $4.3 million after matching all six numbers: 9, 13, 18, 29, 32 and 34.

That payout is nothing to sneeze at, although it was just a fraction of the Powerball jackpot, which was largest the single-ticket prize in Arizona history.

Winners must claim their prizes within 180 days of the drawing date.

Wednesday’s bonanza gave the state three lottery prizes of at least $1 million in the past week. That’s on top of five other wins between $30,000 and $100,000.

The spree started when a ticket sold at the Big AZ Market in Bullhead City hit for $30,000 in Friday night’s Mega Millions game. That was just a warmup.

On Saturday, a Powerball ticket sold at the Circle K on Riverside Drive in Parker matched five numbers but missed the red Powerball, making it worth $1 million.

A ticket sold at the Safeway in Fort Mohave for the same game matched four numbers plus the Powerball, netting a $50,000 payout.

Also Saturday, two players entries split the $137,000 jackpot for matching all five numbers in Arizona’s Fantasy 5 drawing. One ticket was purchased at the Circle K on Thomas Road near Interstate 17 in Phoenix. The other was purchased at the Safeway at Valencia Road and Cardinal Avenue in Tucson.

The hot streak continued Monday, when a Powerball ticket sold at the Shell at Northern and 91st avenues hit for $100,000 by matching four of the five numbers and the Powerball.
