Arkansas residents can buy tickets for Powerball, Mega Millions and Lucky for Life, but they also have in-state lottery games that they can play:
The Natural State Jackpot offers players the chance to win a home-grown cash prize! Drawings are held from Monday through Saturday at 8:00 PM. The jackpot starts at $25,000 and will roll over and increase in value by $5,000 each time a drawing passes without a jackpot winner. Players pay $1 for a ticket and choose five numbers from 1 to 39. Numbers can also be randomly generated if players mark the "Quick Pick" box on the playslip. Here's how it works:
|Winning Tier||Prize||Odds of Winning|
|Match 5 of 5||Jackpot||1 in 575,757|
|Match 4 of 5||$300||1 in 3,387||Match 3 of 5||$7||1 in 103||Match 2 of 5||$1||1 in 10|
|Odds of winning any Natural State Jackpot prize are 1 in 9|

History of the Arkansas Lottery
The Arkansas Lottery was established in late 2008 and began selling tickets for Powerball on October 31st, 2009, with state residents participating in their first Powerball drawing on November 4th, 2009. Mega Millions tickets went on sale in Arkansas on January 31st, 2010.
To date, over 168,000 Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarships have been awarded to students pursuing their dreams of earning a higher education. Without the revenue raised from Arkansas Lottery ticket sales, this impressive statistic wouldn't be possible.

The only way to win it is to be in it - you'll never land a prize for a lottery or raffle game that you never entered. If someone contacts you with news that you've won a big prize for a lottery you never bought a ticket for or have never even heard of, be very wary - you could be the target of a lottery scam.
