$210,000 won by unidentified player in Pine Bluff, lottery official says


LITTLE ROCK — An unidentified player in Pine Bluff has won the Arkansas-only Natural State Jackpot of $210,000, Arkansas Scholarship Lottery officials reported Wednesday night.

The winning ticket was sold at the Harding Avenue Valero in Pine Bluff, therefore, customers who bought tickets there should check their numbers, officials said.

The jackpot broke its own record Wednesday night. The NSJ game drew fans immediately when it launched on Aug. 27.

“With this record jackpot, we saw very heavy sales of Natural State tickets,” Lottery Director Bishop Woosley said. “Odds of winning a prize are 1 in 10, so this game has drawn many loyal players. Natural State Jackpot was the idea of Arkansans who wanted a jackpot game that could only be purchased and won in our state. They said they wanted it, we offered it, and it has been selling like hotcakes.”

Draw results are available at myarkansaslottery.com or at any ASL retailer.
