Let us at 'em

Posted By on Mon, Sep 14, 2009 at 11:45 AM

The first shipment of Arkansas lottery tickets arrived in Little Rock today and lotto boss Ernie Passailaigue (below in Brian Chilson photo) was among those on hand as the bundles rolled off a truck. Rules prevented unwrapping the tickets for display, but images had been released earlier.

The games: 3 Times Lucky, Arkansas Riches, Jumbo Bucks and $100,000 Cash Bonus. Tickets will cost $1, $2 and $5. Odds of winning will be roughly in the 1-in-3 to 1-in-4 range.


UPDATE: Speaking of gambling, here's the monthly report on gambling on electronic games at Oaklawn and Southland Parks, a cumulative $63 million in August. Gamblers got back 94.2 percent of their bets at Oaklawn and 95.2 percent at Southland, if you'd like to compare with the lottery odds.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
