Arkansas Lottery Players Win Big Across State, Pine Bluff Lottery Players Continue Winning
Arkansans all over the state are claiming big prizes this week.
Despite the surge in gasoline prices, a Clark County woman can purchase a lot more than a tank of gas after winning a $1 million Mega Millions® lottery prize. The winner, who elected to remain anonymous under Arkansas law, claimed her prize yesterday at the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) Claim Center in Little Rock.
She purchased the winning Quick Pick ticket from Road Runner, 23190 Interstate 30 in Bryant, for the July 1 drawing. The winning numbers were 1, 27, 29, 38, and 62. She had five white ball numbers but not the Megaball® number 12. If she paid an additional dollar for the Megaplier®, she could have multiplied her prize by three.
“I was traveling to Little Rock for a hair appointment and stopped in Bryant to get gas since it’s cheaper than back home,” she said. “While filling up my tank, I went inside to purchase a couple of lottery tickets.”
She plans to enjoy a pre-planned vacation with her family and purchase a house with her winnings. She is the 87thperson that has won a lottery prize worth $1 million or more in Arkansas since 2009.
Pine Bluff Arkansas lottery players are continuing to win big.
Last month Kashema Marks of Pine Bluff won the biggest ever Natural State Jackpot prize of $520,000. Today Jonathan Love of Pine Bluff claimed a top prize of $500,000 from the $20 200X the Money scratch-off ticket. He purchased the winning ticket from Camden Food & Gas, 3701 S. Camden Road in Pine Bluff. Love first told his mom about the win and has no plans yet for his lottery prize.
A Mega Millions lottery ticket worth $1 million was sold at Super 1 Foods, located at 2800 Hazel in Pine Bluff, for last Friday night’s drawing. The winning numbers were 20, 36, 61, 62, and 69. The player matched all these five white balls, but not the Megaball number 20. The winner has yet to claim the prize.
“Arkansans are winning, and we couldn’t be more excited for them,” said Eric Hagler, ASL executive director. “Additionally, in buying these tickets, these individuals have helped fund college scholarships for Arkansas students, which has funded more than 675,000 scholarships to date.”
