Natural State Jackpot reaches record jackpot, rolls over again for Friday

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - The Natural State Jackpot grows once again after already reaching its highest prize ever on Thursday at $330,000.  No one won, so now the jackpot rolls over to $335,000.

Arkansas Scholarship Lottery said the jackpot started at just $25,000 in January and has been rolling over ever since then.  It may be no Powerball or MegaMillions, but the Lottery said winning the NSJ would be like withdrawing $1,000 every week for the next six years – after taxes.

Odds of winning the Natural State Jackpot are a lot better than the "major" lotteries – just one in 575,757.

Bridgette Bass tried her odds for the first time ever playing any lottery game.  She said she's hoping to pay off some student loans.

"My numbers are 19, 21, 26, 35, 36… nobody go play those numbers right now, because if I win it's all mine," said Bass jokingly.

Bass bought her ticket after the 8:00 PM drawing on Thursday, so she'll be eligible for the $335,000 prize.  

Although there were no jackpot winners on Thursday there are bound to be small prize winners.  If you match two numbers you win $1, three numbers wins $7, and matching four will win you a cool $300.

The lucky numbers for Thursday's drawing for (9, 10, 11, 29 and 30).

The next drawing is Friday night.
