LITTLE ROCK – Hooray, hooray – it’s the first of May, and these new Jackpot instant tickets launched today: $5,000 Jackpot, $20,000 Jackpot, $100,000 Jackpot, and $200,000 Jackpot! This shiny gold family of four games is loaded with prizes and primed for fun. 

In addition to these games’ top prizes, proudly stated in the name of the ticket, May’s new scratch-off games are loaded with other prizes as well. $5,000 Jackpot is a $1 game loaded with $10 prizes; $20,000 Jackpot is a $2 game loaded with $20 prizes; $100,000 Jackpot is a $5 game loaded with $50 prizes; and $200,000 Jackpot is a $10 game loaded with $100 prizes.

 “While national draw games Powerball® and Mega Millions® understandably draw the bulk of attention with their multi-million dollar jackpots, players from all over Arkansas are winning on instant tickets,” Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Director Bishop Woosley noted. Recent winning scratch-off amounts ranging from $10,000 to a million dollars have been sold in Jonesboro, Batesville, Cabot, Warren, Benton, Hamburg, Beebe, Griffithville, Camden, North Little Rock, Osceola, Van Buren, Maumelle, Wynne, Stephens, Luxora, Little Rock, Lowell, Jacksonville, Marked Tree, Paragould, Des Arc, and Hot Springs.

 “Lottery players, lottery retailers, and lottery scholarship recipients alike are all winning in Arkansas,” Woosley added. “We’re proud the lottery has helped fund more than 275,000 scholarships and counting to students right here. With this new family of instant tickets, we hope May will be another winning month in the state. Good luck to everyone!”
