LOTTO Ticket Sold in Little Rock Wins $999,000 Jackpot; Winner Becomes Second LOTTO Jackpot Winner
A LOTTO lottery ticket worth $999,000 was sold at J Grace Mart Inc. located at 10100 N. Rodney Parham Road in Little Rock for last night’s drawing. The winner has yet to come forward.
The Arkansas lottery player won the jackpot by matching the six main numbers – 1, 5, 17, 18, 23 and 39.
“We encourage everyone who played LOTTO at J Grace Mart Inc. to check their tickets,” said Eric Hagler, Arkansas Scholarship Lottery executive director. “The winner has 180 days of the Sept. 13 draw date to claim their prize.”
He added, “We’re eager to find out who won and look forward to congratulating the winner soon!”
Retailers receive a 1 percent commission from the sales of winning lottery products, which means J Grace Mart Inc. will receive a $9,990 commission check for selling the winning LOTTO ticket.
The claimant also becomes the second LOTTO jackpot winner since the game was launched in September 2022.
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 and can be purchased at all lottery retailers or on the Jackpocket app. As with any lottery product, a player must be at least 18 years old to purchase a ticket. The LOTTO jackpot will reset to $250,000.
