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.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
