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.
