How to Play and Win

To play Arkansas Lotto, start by selecting six numbers between 1 and 40. You can get a Quick Pick if you want your numbers to be randomly selected.

The ‘Multi Draw’ option allows you to enter your numbers into several consecutive drawings, up to a maximum of 20. Leave this section blank if you just want to play the upcoming draw.

To win the Lotto jackpot, you need all six of the numbers you pick to be the same as the six main numbers that are drawn.

If you miss out on the jackpot, there are also more prizes available for matching fewer numbers. A Bonus number is drawn from the remaining 34 numbers to create even more ways to win.

Prize and Odds of Winning

There are eight ways to win in total, starting from matching two main numbers plus the Bonus. The payouts are all fixed amounts, apart from the jackpot.

The jackpot starts at $250,000 and keeps growing until it is won. With no limit to how high it can go, the grand prize can sometimes surpass $1 million or even $2 million.
