Several Lottery Jackpots Going Sky High, New LOTTO Jackpot Tops $1 Million

Little Rock, ARK.

Arkansas lottery players have multiple chances to start the new year as a millionaire. The state’s newest game LOTTO, which is only played and won in Arkansas, has surpassed the $1 million mark. The drawing on Wednesday will be for $1,011,000.

The Mega Millions® jackpot has skyrocketed to $565 million for tonight’s drawing, and the Powerball® jackpot for Wednesday night’s drawing is $215 million. The lottery’s Lucky for Life® game also offers players a chance at winning $365,000 a year for life or a one-time payout of approximately $5.7 million.

In addition, two $20 scratch-off tickets each have $1 million prizes available. The $1,000,000 Cash ticket has three top prizes in market, and the $1,000,000 Riches ticket still has one $1 million prize left on it.

LOTTO was launched on Sept. 21 and is still looking for its first jackpot winner. Two LOTTO players have cashed winning tickets for $25,000 and 61 people have won $1,500 or more. However, the top prize has eluded players for three months.

“It would be fantastic if an Arkansas lottery player could start 2023 as a millionaire,” said Eric Hagler, Arkansas Scholarship Lottery executive director. “We are anxiously awaiting our first LOTTO jackpot winner, and we are excited that the jackpot is now more than $1 million.”
