LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' lottery is offering players four new types of scratch-off tickets.

The new scratch-off tickets that go on sale Tuesday join the four the state's lottery began selling when it launched the games Sept. 28. The new tickets on sale are one $1 ticket, 2 $2 tickets and a $5 ticket.

Voters approved Arkansas' lottery in November to raise money for college scholarships. Lottery Director Ernie Passailaigue has predicted the lottery will sell more than $400 million in tickets in its first year.

The lottery will begin selling Powerball tickets Oct. 31.
