LITTLE ROCK, AR - Players will try again tonight to grab the biggest ($410,000) Natural State Jackpot (NSJ) in the game's history.
Lottery officials say 50 players in last night’s NSJ drawing were just one away from matching all five numbers drawn.
The game has not reached this level of play, number of consecutive draws without a top prize winner or jackpot range in the 507 drawings since the game’s first on Aug. 27, 2012.
The amazing jackpot amount is a direct result of Arkansas player interest and excitement in the game, say lottery officials.
The April 8th and 9th NSJ game ticket sales totaled over $305,700, making it the highest two day of sales total for the game, along with the highest number of prize winners 17,749, in a single day of play, on April 9th.
NSJ players choose just 5 numbers between 1 and 39 in this game and player’s can choose to play up to 20 consecutive draws in NSJ. Each play costs $1. The game is drawn six nights a week (Monday through Saturday), at 8.
The Natural State Jackpot game is only available in Arkansas. If there is no Jackpot Winner tonight, the game will roll to $415,000 for the Friday night drawing.
