Natural State Jackpot is Record $240,000 for Tuesday Draw

The grand prize hasn't been won since February 4th.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - A record-setting grand prize is up for grabs in tonight's drawing for the Natural State Jackpot (NSJ).

The jackpot started building on February 4th at $25,000 after its last winner won $155,000 two nights before.

The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery says the one-dollar Arkansas-only jackpot game has delivered on its promise to fund scholarships while producing regular big winners.

Since the first NSJ ticket was sold on August 27, 2012, Arkansas players have won eight jackpots of $100,000, $120,000, $50,000, $35,000, $95,000, $80,000, $210,000, and $155,000. In total, Arkansas players have won more than $2 Million in prizes on this one game, lottery officials say. 

“The players of Arkansas told us they wanted a jackpot draw game designed just for them, and the enthusiasm for the Natural State Jackpot has remained high since the first day of play. We may see a big winner tonight,” said Lottery Director Bishop Woosley. The prize grows $5,000 a day and is just waiting for a lucky Natural State player to choose the five numbers that will match those chosen in the 8:00 p.m. drawing in Little Rock. 

If you want to get in on the game each day, buy a $1 Jackpot ticket before 7:00 p.m. Tickets bought after 7:00 p.m. or on Sunday will apply to the next day’s drawing.

Monday night alone, 5,040 players won prizes between $1 and $300. Monday's numbers were: 5 - 12 - 22 - 27 - 31.

To play, just pick five numbers between 1 and 39, or ask for a Quick Pick and let the computer choose the numbers for you. If you want to play daily without repeated trips to the store, ask your retailer for extended-play NSJ tickets for up to 20 draws. 

The Natural State Jackpot is sold exclusively in Arkansas, with a 1 in 9 chance of winning a prize.
