First multi-state raffle drawing to be held

For the first time, a multi-state raffle drawing operated by the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) will be drawn today, Nov. 1, 2013.

The seven states participating in the drawing, and the names the raffle is going by in each state, are:

  • Iowa - Halloween Millions Raffle

  • Indiana - Halloween Millionaire Raffle

  • Michigan - Halloween Millions Raffle

  • New Jersey - Halloween Millions Raffle

  • New York - Halloween Millions Raffle

  • Ohio - Multi-State Millions Raffle

  • Oklahoma - National Millionaire Raffle

Among the seven participating states, there will be at least two $1 million prizes awarded — and more if ticket sales permit. Any participating state that does not have a $1 million winner will automatically have a $50,000 winner drawn from the tickets sold in the state.

New Jersey and Indiana also will conduct in-state Early Bird drawings — four drawings in New Jersey and three in Indiana.  Results of the Early Bird drawings are available on the New Jersey Lottery Results and Hoosier Lottery Results pages.

Arkansas 50/50 Drawing

Arkansas 50/50 is a raffle-style draw game exclusive to Arkansas.

Draw sales begin on the first of every month and end on the last day of every month.

Drawings are held the first Tuesday of each month.

50% of all ticket sales are allocated to prizes.

On the day of the drawing, 25 ticket numbers will be drawn by a random number generator.  One of those 25 numbers will be awarded the grand prize, and the other 24 numbers will split the second prize pool.

  • Grand prize (1 winner) wins 75% of the total prize pool, which amounts to 37.5% of all ticket sales.
  • Second prize (24 winners) splits 25% of the total prize pool, which means each second-prize winner will receive .5% of all ticket sales.

In order to win, your 6-digit ticket number must be identical to one of the twenty-five 6-digit ticket numbers drawn.

Arkansas 50/50 drawing results will be published on Lottery Post's Arkansas Lottery Results page soon after the drawing.


Million Dollar Raffle Early Bird Drawing

In the Arkansas Lottery's Million Dollar Raffle game, 3 Early Bird drawings will take place on Oct. 1, Nov. 5, and Dec. 3, 2013.  Each Early Bird Drawing will select one $10,000 winner and 10 $1,000 winners from all raffle tickets purchased from the start of sales on Sept. 1, 2013.

The sales cut-off point to be entered into each Early Bird drawing is as follows:

  • Oct. 1 drawing:  Must purchase by Sept. 30
  • Nov. 5 drawing:  Must purchase by Oct. 31
  • Dec. 3 drawing:  Must purchase by Nov. 30

The final Million Dollar Raffle drawing will take place on Jan. 2, 2014, and will award the following prizes:

  • 1 winner of $1 million
  • 5 winners of $100,000
  • 10 winners of $10,000
  • 100 winners of $500

The last day to purchase a Million Dollar Raffle ticket is Dec. 31, 2013.  The lottery is not limiting the number of tickets that can be sold, so the odds of winning a prize will not be known until the final ticket sales are tallied.

The winning numbers for each Early Bird drawing, as well as the Final drawing, will be published on Lottery Post's Arkansas Lottery Results page soon after each drawing.
