Lottery launching new Arkansas-only numbers game

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas lottery is launching a new numbers game that will feature drawings six nights per week and an expected average jackpot of more than $150,000.
Tickets will cost $1 and go on sale Monday for the Natural State Jackpot.
The game is similar to Powerball and Mega Millions, except those games are played across dozens of states and the odds of winning a jackpot are one in 176 million.
Odds of claiming the top prize in the Arkansas-only game will be one in 576,000. A match of all five numbers wins the jackpot.
Players matching four numbers will win $300; three numbers, $7; and two numbers, $1.
Drawings will be held at 8 p.m. at lottery headquarters, Monday through Saturday.
