Let us at that Powerball

Posted By on Thu, Nov 12, 2009 at 2:00 PM

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.

The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
