The newest lottery game in Arkansas just had its first top-prize winner! When our player in Sebastian County, Arkansas found out that she won the coveted grand prize...on her first LOTTO ticket ever... she says she was in shock.
"I usually play Natural State Jackpot or Lucky for Life, but [ordered] the LOTTO ticket on a whim,” the winner said. “The LOTTO jackpot looked high, and since I’ve never played the game before, I decided to try that one."
"I first told my husband, but he didn’t believe me because we never win anything,” she added. Not any more! With this $2.3 million windfall, 2023 is sure shaping up to be a winning year!

"I came out of my shoes and started running. I couldn’t believe it!”
As a working mom and regular lottery player, Kashema's busy schedule doesn’t leave a lot of room for fun—good thing Jackpocket makes playing so much easier! “Instead of getting off work, getting my kids, and going to the gas station to play my numbers Monday through Friday, I found out about the app…and I’ve been playing on [Jackpocket] ever since.”
She's going to use her prize money to help her family.
“I’ve gotta get another car…then I’m going to get a house and save the rent! I’m [also] going to use the money to help my mom and my sisters.”
3. $25,000 a Year for Life - Lucky for Life (Austin, AR)
Edrick T. of Austin, Arkansas doesn’t consider himself a lucky person. Whatever he has, he's worked hard for. “I never win anything! I’m always the one who has to go out and get it.”
Edrick ordered his first ticket—a Lucky for Life Quick Pick— on his lunch break from work. “I thought, let’s prove some friends right or wrong.”
And in a stroke of, well, luck, that very first ticket was a Lucky for Life second-place winner.
Is Lucky for Life a favorite lottery game for Edrick? “Oh, this is just my first time playing it. I liked the name of it. I saw it and thought, 'Yeah, I’d like to be Lucky for Life.’”
