LITTLE ROCK – The first draw for the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL)’s new LOTTO game took place last night. Since no one won the $250,000 jackpot, Saturday’s draw increased the jackpot to an estimated $280,000.

The winning numbers were 4, 13, 17, 18, 24 and 32 and the bonus number was 37. There were 2,727 winners of non-jackpot prizes ranging from $2 to $3,000.

LOTTO is played and won only in Arkansas. Draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday at 9pm in Little Rock. A single play costs $2. As with any lottery product, he must be 18 years of age or older to purchase a ticket.

Eric Hagler, executive director of ASL, said research showed that Arkansas players wanted games with higher starting state-specific jackpots.

Hagler said the game would create several millionaires each year and is projected to increase scholarship funding as more money from draw game sales goes to lottery beneficiaries. .

This game, unlike Powerball® and Mega Millions®, is Arkansas exclusive and features bonus numbers. A player chooses his six main numbers from 1 to 40 to play. 7 numbers are drawn. If a player matches his first six numbers drawn in any order, he wins the jackpot. Players matching the bonus numbers increase their non-jackpot winnings.

Each time you draw a jackpot you don’t win and the amount of the next jackpot increases based on your game sales. Win the jackpot by matching his first six numbers drawn and it will reset to $250,000 on the next draw.

Bonus numbers are drawn simultaneously with 6 main numbers from the same pool of 40 numbers. Players who match 5, 4, 3 or 2 of the 6 main numbers have the chance to win even bigger prizes. For example, if a player matches his 5 main numbers with a bonus number, he wins $25,000.

Both winning and non-winning tickets are eligible to participate in The Club for Points for Prizes. ®
