(KATV, Source: Arkansas Scholarship Lottery) Little Rock - Arkansas' Natural State Jackpot (NSJ) has grown to $100,000. Drawings are held six nights a week, every night except Sunday at 8:00 p.m. The jackpot has been hit 12 times to date.

To play NSJ, players choose five numbers between one and 39. Each play costs $1. You win $1-$300 if you match 2 to 4 numbers. All five numbers will win the jackpot, guaranteed to be worth at least $25,000. Each night in which there is no big winner, an additional $5,000 is added to the jackpot. If there is more than one jackpot winner, the prize will be equally divided among all the jackpot prize winners.

The Powerball Jackpot is now up to $350 Million. That makes it the seventh biggest annuity prize ever in the U.S. This will be the 13th drawing in a row without a jackpot winner. The drawing is held every Wednesday and Saturday.

Mega Millions Jackpot has increased to $170 Million. The largest jackpot in Mega Millions history was $656 million. The next drawing will be held Tuesday night, May 14 at 10:00 p.m. 

The numbers from the drawings will be displayed at the beginning of the Channel Seven 10 p.m. newscast.
