Lottery player wins one-minute shopping spree, up to $1k in free groceries

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- One lucky Arizona Lottery player won the chance to race through a local Bashas' store on Monday morning to grab as many grocery items as possible in one minute up to $1,000 -- enough to feed a family of four for about two months.

Javier Soto introduced us to Ben West as he prepared to race through the Bashas' store at 16th Street and Glendale Avenue.

As Jeff Hatch Miller, executive director of the Arizona Lottery, explained, the contest was to promote Mega Mondays in honor of the new Mega Millions jackpot  game. Every Monday through the end of May, you can get $5 worth of Arizona Lottery tickets for just $4.
