Arkansan Hits Life-Changing $2,338,000 Lotto Jackpot
If you purchased a Lotto ticket for Saturday night’s draw, you could be $2.338 million richer and the first jackpot winner from the state’s newest lottery draw game only for Arkansans.
According to a press release, one lucky Arkansas Scholarship Lottery player purchased a ticket on the Jackpocket mobile app and won by matching the six main numbers: 20, 12, 27, 10, 6, and 21. So far, no one has come forward to claim the money.
“We’re beyond thrilled someone in Arkansas hit the $2.338 million jackpot Saturday night and can’t wait to meet Lotto’s first-ever jackpot winner,” said Eric Hagler, ASL executive director.
“They urge players to check their tickets to see if they won.” Lotto is only played and won in Arkansas. Drawings are held at 9 p.m. in Little Rock every Wednesday and Saturday. Tickets are $2 per play. “A lucky player won a life-changing $2,338,000 Lotto jackpot.
This is the highest in-state prize won on an Arkansas-only game to date,” said Mike Smith, ASL gaming director. “I look forward to the winner coming in to claim their prize.” Lotto players must match six main numbers to win the jackpot or match other number combinations with or without the bonus number – to win non-jackpot prizes up to $25,000.
This game was designed to give Arkansas lottery players an opportunity to win a significant jackpot amount without having to compete with players across the United States,” said Mark Hearn, ASL sales director. “With this jackpot win, we successfully achieved that goal.” Retailers receive a 1 percent commission from each winning ticket sold. Jackpocket will receive $23,380 in commission when the winner claims their prize
