It's now been more than six months after voters approved the lottery.
Earlier this month, the nine-member Lottery Commission held its first meetings to discuss how to run the game.
The panel says 2,000 retailers have applied to sell lottery tickets, which are expected to go on sale before the end of the year.
The commission has also launched a website that allows Arkansans to keep tracks of developments. (Click here).
So far the only information on the site includes meeting agendas (their next meeting is Wednesday afternoon in Little Rock), and a job post seeking to fill the lottery's Executive Director position.
Part of the job description reads: "The Executive Director will have ultimate day-to-day responsibility for assuring that the lottery operates with integrity, security and transparency, and that its products, promotions and activities are in keeping with the community standards of Arkansas. Establishing a detailed knowledge of the state of Arkansas is imperative. Understanding the importance of diversity and minority inclusion, both in lottery staffing and in businesses with whom the lottery deals, is a vital personal and professional quality."
Other issues the Lottery Commission is considering are background checks of retailers, and inspection of their facilities.
