“This is the first time in history that both national draw games have gone over $400 million at the same time,” Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) Director Bishop Woosley said in a Wednesday news release. “Also, our Arkansas-only Natural State Jackpot has been on a roll, too – tonight’s NSJ jackpot is $140,000!”
The ASL says a simple way for novices and seasoned players alike to join the fun is with the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery’s 5-Buck Bundle promotion offered through February. Players who buy the bundle get a $2 Powerball® with Power Play® ticket, a $2 Mega Millions® ticket, and a free $1 Natural State Jackpot ticket. (All three tickets will be Quick Picks. This promotion is not available from lottery TVMs or if tickets are purchased separately).
