The Arkansas Lottery has distributed figures that show Arkansas ranked 8th highest among 33 jurisdictions (31 states, D.C. and Virgin Islands) in Powerball gambling per capita this week. We are third highest in the percentage of Powerball players making Powerplay wagers (where you pay a buck to double your winnings on some of the prizes).


The statistics below are from the Powerball® drawing last night, Wednesday, November 11.  They show Arkansas Powerball® sales as eighth highest per capita among the 33 jurisdictions (31 states, DC, and USVI).  They show Arkansas Powerplay sales as third highest per capita.
