Arkansas Lottery Players Win Big Across State; Lottery Jackpots Continue to Soar
Arkansans all over the state claimed big prizes this week.
A lucky Fordyce man got an early birthday present courtesy of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery’s $20 200X instant game. LC Brown, who will turn 65 next Thursday, recently claimed his $500,000 lottery prize at the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) Claim Center.
Brown purchased the scratch-off ticket at Bailey’s Mobile, 2235 Highway 79 in Fordyce. With Brown’s win, two top prizes of $500,000 remain on the 200X instant game.
“I stopped at Bailey’s to get some chicken and decided to purchase a lottery ticket while I was there,” said Brown. “I knew I had won big when all the bells and sirens started going off after I gave my ticket to the store clerk to confirm my win.”
He remained calm despite having just won a life-changing amount of money. Brown first told his brother, Frank, about his win. With his newfound wealth, he plans to save and continue working.
“I work at a lumber company and don’t plan to retire right now because I enjoy staying active,” Brown told lottery officials.
Two Arkansans each won $200,000. Pamela Clark of Hot Springs won a top prize from the $10 $200,000 Max instant game. She plans to put her winnings toward traveling and retirement. Christopher Hilbourn of Russellville won playing the $10 Jumbo Bucks Extra scratch-off ticket and plans to spend his lottery prize on home improvements.
AR Progressive Jackpot players are also winning big – Bruce Hoselton of Forrest City claimed a prize worth $10,494, and Jeramy Fernandez of Bentonville won $26,883.
