Natural State Jackpot to start daily drawings

The Arkansas Lottery’s Natural State Jackpot game was launched in April 2012. Since then, players have had the opportunity to play the game Monday through Saturday. On April 21, 2024, that’s set to change. As of that date, players will have an additional chance to win big cash prizes with the addition of a Sunday drawing.

Under the new rules, the jackpot prize will start out at $50,000. With each new draw that the jackpot is not won, it will increase by $5,000. Once the jackpot reaches $100,000 and is still not won, it will increase by $10,000 with each subsequent draw.

In a press release, Mike Smith, the Arkansas State Lottery (ASL) gaming director said, “Adding the Sunday drawing will result in larger, faster-growing jackpots.”

The cost to play Natural State Jackpot will remain the same - $1. As of April 21, 2024, drawings will be held seven days a week at 8 p.m. CT.

Natural State Jackpot’s Biggest Winner

In June 2022, National State Jackpot player Kashema Marks became the game’s biggest winner with a jackpot prize of $520,000.

Kashea said she would use her winning to buy a new car, and a house, and give the rest to her mother.

How the lottery helps Arkansas

Since its launch in 2009, the Arkansas Lottery has sold more than $7.3 billion worth of lottery tickets. From that revenue, over $1.3 billion has been donated to support students throughout the Bear State. This has enabled more than 720,000 college students to receive scholarships. This is also a win for players who have received more than $4.9 billion in prizes. Retailers have also benefited with an estimated 413 million in commissions.
