Two Lucky Arkansans Win $25,000 on New LOTTO Game, LOTTO Jackpot Continues to Grow – Up to $1,338,000
Today Jonathan Pierangeli of Fayetteville and Edna Owens of Atkins each claimed their $25,000 prize from winning LOTTO tickets at the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Claim Center.
Pierangeli purchased his ticket from Jackpocket Winner’s Corner via the Jackpocket lottery app for last Wednesday’s drawing. The winning numbers were 4, 6, 11, 29, 32, 36 with a Bonus Number of 40. Owens purchased her ticket from the Tobacco Town in Atkins for Saturday night’s drawing. The winning numbers were 3, 17, 19, 20, 23, 28 with a Bonus Number of 16.
Both players had five of the first six numbers drawn, plus the Bonus Number.
Pierangeli said he was at work when he got the text from Jackpocket saying he won a lottery prize. He plans to pay off debt with his winnings.
Saturday was the first time Owens had ever played LOTTO since it was launched in September. She said she had played Powerball®, Mega Millions® and Natural State Jackpot, but decided to try her luck on the state lottery’s newest game. Owens already had plans to retire in June, and this winning lottery prize will help with that.
The LOTTO jackpot, which is only played and won in Arkansas, is up to $1,338,000 for Wednesday night’s drawing.
Tonight, the Powerball jackpot has surged to $502 million, and the Natural State Jackpot is up to $105,000. The Mega Millions Jackpot stands at $31 million for tomorrow night’s drawing.
