LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (News release) - Just in time to catch tonight’s national Powerball jackpot at more than $200 million, the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery announces the extension of the 5 Buck Bundle – a package which includes Powerball, Mega Millions and Natural State Jackpot tickets – through the month of February by popular demand.
What is the 5 Buck Bundle?
Arkansas Scholarship Lottery players simply buy a $3 Powerball with PowerPlay ticket and a $2 Mega Millions with Megaplier ticket and get a free $1 Natural State Jackpot ticket all February long. All three tickets will be Quick Picks. (This promotion is not available from lottery ticket vending machines or if tickets are purchased separately.)
The jackpot for tonight’s Powerball drawing is an estimated annuitized $206 million. Thousands of Arkansas players have been Powerball winners since the state started Powerball sales on October 31, 2009. Powerball itself began in April 1992 in 15 states with jackpots that started at a guaranteed $2 million. Since then, Powerball has grown into one of the world’s biggest and most recognizable lottery games, sold by 47 lotteries across the nation, with players buying more than $4 billion in Powerball tickets each year.
Friday night's Mega Millions jackpot is $20 million.
With 8 p.m. drawings Monday through Saturday, the Wednesday drawing top prize for the Arkansas-only Natural State Jackpot is $45,000.
