Fiscal Year a record proceeds year for Arkansas Scholarship Lottery

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
July 13,

LITTLE ROCK, AR – The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) announced today that it raised a record $ million in proceeds for Fiscal Year , which ended June In total since its inception in , ASL has raised more than $1 billion in scholarship proceeds.

ASL Executive Director Eric Hagler calls the achievement “extraordinary,” especially in light of the socioeconomic challenges of the past year.

“Despite the chaos and disruption over the past 16 months, Arkansans continued to support the scholarship program by buying lottery tickets in record numbers,” Hagler said. “Our dedicated team of professionals at the office of the Arkansas Lottery and our strong retailer network helped us to out-perform every metric in FY We are grateful because it allows us to fulfill our mission of helping to educate Arkansas students, which will have a long-term positive economic impact on our state.” 

Hagler said the record numbers posted for FY stand as proof that the Lottery is trending upward and on a proper course for prudent growth. But he says expectations for FY should be tempered because of potential limits on consumer discretionary spending.

“The re-opening of additional entertainment venues coupled with rising inflation and fuel costs represent a challenge to reproduce the same sales and net proceeds numbers achieved this past year,” Hagler commented.

Lottery proceeds support three scholarship programs.

The Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarship provides tuition assistance for Arkansans at two- and four-year public and private colleges.

The Arkansas Workforce Challenge Scholarship is available for students applying for certificate programs in high demand occupations.

The Arkansas Concurrent Challenge Scholarship provides financial assistance to eligible students in the state who want to take college courses while still high school.

Corrigan Revels, a UA-Little Rock graduate and current employee of the school, says he was the first person in his immediate family to graduate from college, thanks in part to the lottery. 

“When I chose to attend UA-Little Rock, the lottery scholarship was a huge blessing,” said Revels. “Now, I’m in a position to help other students at my alma mater reach their fullest potential. I want to thank Arkansans for supporting students and graduates like myself.”

Hagler calls the lottery a win-win-win situation for everyone at every stage of the lottery process.

“Obviously, students in Arkansas win by receiving tuition assistance,” Hagler said. “Our retail partners also win when a player cashes in a winning ticket and when foot traffic increases in their stores. And, of course, players win when they redeem potentially life-changing prizes.”

Since , the lottery has awarded more than $ billion in prizes to players, resulting in approximately $ million in retailer commissions.

The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery is run by the government of Arkansas.

History[edit]

On November 4, , Arkansas voters approved a ballot question legalizing the sale of lottery tickets there. The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Act establishes a Commission to oversee the operation of the Lottery in Arkansas (see Arkansas Lottery Commission below). On July 1, , Arkansas voted to join the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL); it was the 33rd lottery to join.

Ticket buyers must be at least 18, which is the usual minimum age for US lotteries, but lower than in neighboring Louisiana. Video lottery is prohibited. Arkansas started selling scratch off tickets on September 28, Powerball tickets went on sale on October 31, [1]Mega Millions tickets went on sale in Arkansas on January 31,

Arkansas conducts its in-house draw games using a random number generator (RNG); it is believed to be the first US lottery to begin with computerized drawings. Balls and drawing machines are not used by the Lottery, although this "classic" drawing method is used in Arkansas' multi-jurisdictional games (Lucky for Life, Mega Millions, and Powerball.)

Arkansas Lottery Commission[edit]

Subchapter 2 of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Act established the creation of the Arkansas Lottery Commission. The subchapter established the Commission or Lottery as a self-supporting and revenue-raising agency of the state. The commission had 9 members by law, of whom three were appointed by the Governor, three by the Speaker of the state House of Representatives, and three by the President Pro Tempore of the state Senate. After the initial appointment of commissioners, the normal term of each commissioner was six years. Commissioners were limited to no more than two terms of six years and General Assembly members or anyone in their immediate family were prohibited from serving as commissioners.

In the legislative session of the General Assembly, the Arkansas Lottery Commission was abolished. Act of dissolved the 9 member commission and placed lottery operations under the purview of the Department of Finance and Administration.[2]
