Lottery’s Natural State Jackpot Continues to Grow


The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery’s Natural State Jackpot (NSJ) continues to soar. Setting a new record, tonight’s drawing is worth $450,000.  

The NSJ launched in October 2012. The NSJ jackpot starts at $50,000 and increases by $5,000 every draw until it hits $150,000. After that, it increases by $10,000 every draw until it is won. Each play is $1.

Players also have two chances to become a multi-millionaire this weekend with Powerball® and Mega Millions®jackpots totaling more than $455 million.

The Mega Millions® jackpot stands at $226 million for tonight’s 10 p.m. drawing. 

The Powerball® jackpot for Saturday’s 9:59 p.m. drawing is $229 million. 

Life-changing jackpots produce more than just lottery winners. Proceeds from sales drive more money for scholarships for Arkansas students. 

Since 2009, the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery has raised more than $1.1 billion in scholarship proceeds and awarded more than 675,000 scholarships.
