Wynne Woman Wins $50,000 Prize Playing Instant Game; New Instant Tickets Launch for July


One lucky Arkansas lottery player recently won big with a $20 scratch-off ticket.

Christine H., a Wynne resident, won $50,000 with a $20 ticket for the $1,000,000 VIP Club instant game. She claimed her prize at the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Claim Center on June 28.

The winning ticket was sold at Flash Market #7025 at 3400 N. Washington St. in Forrest City.

Christine plays lottery games once per month, typically buying a $20 scratch-off ticket in hopes of claiming a $1 million prize. During a routine gas stop, the Wynne resident decided to try her luck with the $1,000,000 VIP Club instant game.

The woman scratched off her ticket at home and, to her amazement, discovered she had won $50,000.

“I just felt so excited! I couldn’t even believe it,” Christine shared with lottery officials.

Though she had her sights set on the game’s $1 million top prize, Christine was just as happy with her winnings. Previously, she had won $50 at most on other instant games.

Christine first shared the news with her daughter, who, in shock, thought she was joking.

“I told her to stop messing around,” Christine’s daughter said. “I didn’t believe her at first.”

The Wynne woman has also shared the news of her win with her other children. With her prize, she plans to remodel her bathroom and buy another lottery ticket.

Four $1 million top prizes remain on the $1,000,000 VIP Club instant game.

Tomorrow marks the launch of July’s new scratch-off tickets, with top prizes ranging from $50 to $200,000. These games include $50 Blast!, $100 Loaded!, Xtreme Crossword, $6 Million Blowout! and Multiplier Mania.
