About the Arkansas Lottery

Voters in Arkansas approved a ballot referendum legalizing the sale of lottery tickets in November 2008 and establishing the Arkansas Lottery Commission. This was later replaced by the Department of Finance and Administration to regulate Lottery games in 2015. Four in-state draw games are currently offered, along with three multi-jurisdiction draw games and various instant games that can be purchased at retailers throughout Arkansas.

Lottery tickets aren’t available on the official Arkansas Scholarship Lottery official app. However, lottery officials have formed partnerships to allow games to be sold using the Jackpocket mobile app, which is the only legal way to play Arkansas Lottery games online.

Players with questions about the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery can refer to the Frequently Asked Questions section on the website or contact the Player Services Hotline at (800) 201-0108 from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM local time, Monday through Friday.
