A lucky lottery player in Arkansas holds a Mega Millions ticket worth $250,000 after last night’s drawing.
While there was no jackpot winner of the $55-million grand prize, one Arkansas player hit it big.
A ticket was sold at Pointer Express 2 on Kibler Road in Van Buren (Crawford County in West Arkansas) which displayed the five white ball numbers drawn, resulting in a $250,000 prize.
If the player had also bought the $1 Megaplier, they would have won $1-million.
The identity of the winner will not be known until the ticket is presented for cashing, likely at the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Claim Center in Springdale or in Little Rock.
The owner of the Pointer Express store will receive a $2,500 selling bonus when the ticket is cashed.
In other lottery news, millions are up for grabs in the next Powerball and Mega Millions drawings.
Tonight’s Powerball jackpot is $55-million, and Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot is $65-million.
