LOTTO Jackpot Skyrockets to $2.031 Million; New Game Still Looking for First Jackpot Winner
The state’s newest lottery game, LOTTO, has skyrocketed to a $2.031 million jackpot for Saturday night’s drawing.
With a starting jackpot of $250,000, LOTTO is only played and won in Arkansas. Drawings are held at 9 p.m. in Little Rock every Wednesday and Saturday. Tickets are $2 per play. As with any lottery product, a player must be 18 or older to purchase a ticket.
To celebrate the LOTTO jackpot, the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) will host an activation event on April 5 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Circle K, 11821 Colonel Glenn Road in Little Rock, where the public can purchase LOTTO tickets and play a game to win lottery swag.
Jackpocket users who have never played LOTTO or only played a few times will also receive an exclusive $1 off promo code via the Jackpocket lottery app.
“Anticipation is building as the jackpot continues to grow,” said Eric Hagler, ASL executive director. “We understand playing for a large jackpot can be exciting, so we want to remind our players to play responsibly and that it only takes one ticket to win.”
A LOTTO player picks six numbers from 1 to 40. Six main numbers and a bonus number are drawn. To win the jackpot, a player must match the first six numbers (main numbers) drawn in any order. Players who match the Bonus Number will increase any non-jackpot prizes.
Although the game is still looking for its first jackpot winner since its September 2022 launch, 160,913 Arkansas lottery players have won more than $1 million in total prizes on the game. Four players matched five of the six numbers drawn plus the Bonus Number, each winning $25,000. Additionally, 145 winners claimed $1,500 lottery prizes by only matching the first five numbers.
The LOTTO jackpot will increase after every draw until won. Both winning and non-winning tickets are eligible to enter in The Club for Points for Prizes®. For more information, including game odds and winning numbers, please visit MyArkansasLottery.com/LOTTO.
