Benton County Store Sells $1 Million Lottery Ticket
An Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) retailer in Bentonville recently sold a top prize-winning $1 million lottery ticket. The prize was claimed Tuesday at the ASL Claim Center in Little Rock.
The winning $20 $1,000,000 Riches scratch-off ticket was purchased from Walmart To Go & Express Store, 1300 South Walton Boulevard in Bentonville.
Retailers receive a 1 percent commission from the sales of winning lottery products, which means Walmart To Go & Express Store will receive a $10,000 commission for selling the winning ticket.
With the million-dollar win, one top prize of $1 million remains on the $1,000,000 Riches game, and a $50,000 ticket is still in circulation.
Players also have two chances to become a multi-millionaire this week with Mega Millions® and Powerball® jackpots totaling more than $179 million. The Mega Millions jackpot stands at $99 million for tomorrow night’s drawing. The Powerball jackpot for Saturday night has reached $80 million.
The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery’s Natural State Jackpot (NSJ) is $135,000 for tonight.
To purchase a ticket, visit a local lottery retailer and ask for a computer-generated Quick Pick or choose your own lucky numbers. For more information on game odds and how to play, visit MyArkansasLottery.com.
