Lottery To Add $1 Million Raffle

The Arkansas Lottery is selling tickets for a new $1,000,000 raffle game.

The new game will have three monthly drawings starting in October for prizes worth up to $10,000, with the winning drawing in January.

"The January drawing will be for the million dollars, but we encourage people to buy tickets throughout the course of the game because you'll have more opportunities at early bird drawings that'll occur throughout the course of that game," said Lottery Director Bishop Woosley.

Tickets will cost $10 each, but the lottery will sell three for $20 and six chances for $30.

The lottery also plans to roll out more than 40 new instant ticket games in the coming year.
