Weekend Draws Welcome Big Jackpots for In-State Games


In-state draw game jackpots continue to rise for this weekend’s drawings.

For Saturday night, the LOTTO jackpot is $2.469 million.

Played and won only in Arkansas, LOTTO is designed to offer Arkansas players more chances of winning bigger prizes. This $2.469 million jackpot marks the game’s highest since its launch in September 2022.

LOTTO drawings occur twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9 p.m. Six numbers and one bonus number are drawn. To win the jackpot, a player must match the first six numbers drawn in any order.

The bonus number is not necessary to win the jackpot. Instead, it offers players who matched two or more winning numbers a chance to win better prizes. For example, the prize for matching five out of six winning numbers without the bonus number is $1,500; with the bonus number, the prize increases to $25,000.

LOTTO ticket sales cut off at 8:59 p.m., and tickets cost $2 per play.

For tonight’s drawing, the Natural State Jackpot (NSJ) is $480,000.

Tickets cost $1 per play, and ticket sales cut off at 7:59 p.m. To win the jackpot, a player must match all five winning numbers drawn.

LOTTO and NSJ tickets are available through licensed Arkansas lottery retailers, the Jackpocket app,, and

All draw game winners have 180 days from the draw date to claim their prizes. If more than one player holds a jackpot-winning ticket, the prize will be divided evenly among the players.
