Arizona Lottery: Welcome Back Willie

OH Partners

Arizona first got to know Willie in 1981 as a simple hand-drawn character seen in the company’s logo and advertising efforts. Through the years his look and appearance evolved leading to a live action mascot iteration seen in the company’s broadcast commercials in the mid 90s and early 2000s.

After some time away, Willie’s character is re-introduced and reinvented in human form as a wise and comedic character played by “Mr. Show’s” writer and actor, John Ennis.
