Big Arkansas Lottery Wins

By January 4, 2010

Follow me on:

The Arkansas winner of a $25 million Powerball prize still has not come forward to claim his or her prize, but it is a good new year for lottery wins.

On December 29, there were two $100,000 prize winner.   On Jan 1, Tammy Johnson from Rogers bought a $500,000 Jackpot instant ticket from the Kum & Go Store in Lowell and won the top prize, which she claimed today.  The winning Powerball ticket was sold on Jan 2.

The Powerball ticket was sold at The Crackerbox Food Store No. 25 in Mayflower.  The lottery commission says they've had a few people claiming they won the prize, but no confirmation yet.

Buying a lottery ticket may be a good way to celebrate the new year.

I have been following the powerball and mega millions for quite some time and Arkansas never wins ever for (5) numbers, always California, Ohio, Flordia,Etc states. I am in conclusion that something is definitely wrong in buying a lottery ticket in Arkansas. The same states win in every draw.
