Arkansans Could Win Big with Tonight’s Draw Games


The LOTTO jackpot soars to $2.173 million for tonight’s drawing.

Tonight marks LOTTO’s second-highest jackpot since its launch in September of 2022. Its highest jackpot, $2.338 million, was claimed in May 2023.

LOTTO is a draw game that is played and won exclusively in Arkansas. It is designed to offer Arkansas players a chance to win bigger prizes. Previous jackpot winners include residents of Sebastian County and Pulaski County.

LOTTO drawings occur every Wednesday and Friday at 9 p.m. Ticket sales cut off at 8:59 p.m., and tickets cost $2 per play. As with all lottery products, players must be 18 years old or older to purchase a ticket.

A LOTTO player picks six numbers from 1 to 40. Six numbers plus a bonus number are drawn, and a player must match the first six numbers, in any order, to win the jackpot. Alternate prizes are available for winners who match three or more winning numbers, with or without the bonus number.

Once the jackpot is won, it resets to $250,000 and increases with each drawing. If several players have jackpot-winning tickets, the jackpot is split evenly among the winners.

Also drawing tonight, the Powerball® jackpot is $185 million, and the Natural State Jackpot is $250,000.

Proceeds from the sale of lottery tickets help fund student scholarships in Arkansas, with more than 770,000 scholarships awarded to Arkansans since 2009.
