LITTLE ROCK, AR - The largest-ever Natural State Jackpot (NSJ) is up for grabs tonight at $345,000.

There were 9,743 lucky players who won prizes from $1 to $300 in the last NSJ drawing.

Drawings are held six nights a week (except Sunday) at 8 p.m.

The Largest Natural State Jackpot that has been won to date was $295,000 on January 14.

NSJ is similar to Powerball, Mega Millions, and Decades of Dollars. Players choose five numbers between one and 39 and can play the same numbers for up to 20 consecutive draws. Each play costs $1.

Players matching two numbers will win $1; three numbers win $7; four matching numbers win $300, and all five numbers will win the jackpot, guaranteed to be worth at least $25,000. Each night in which there is no big winner, an additional $5,000 is added to the jackpot. If there is more than one jackpot winner, the prize will be equally divided among all the jackpot prize winners. The overall odds of winning are one in nine.
