LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Ronald Wallace of Bryant bought a $2 Lucky for Life® lottery ticket at the Flash Market located at 26213 Interstate-30 in Bryant and won $25,000-a-year-for-life. He took the cash option of $390,000. The winning numbers in last night’s drawing were 9-16-17-20-23 with the Lucky Ball being 3. Wallace selected all five gold ball numbers without the Lucky Ball number.
Lucky for Life® is a multi-state game with drawings every Monday and Thursday. Five numbered balls are drawn from one to 48 and one Lucky Ball number is drawn from one to 18. If all a player’s numbers match those that are chosen, he wins the top prize of $7,000 a week for life.
The last Lucky for Life® winner in Arkansas was Robert Norwood Jr. from Little Rock. He matched the five gold ball numbers and claimed his prize on March 13, 2018. Instead of taking $25,000 a year for life, he selected the cash option of $390,000. Norwood bought his winning ticket at the Phillips 66 retailer, 11615 Cantrell Road in Little Rock.
“We continue to have big winners,” said Bishop Woosley, director of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery. “Just this week winners from across the state have claimed prizes of $200,000, $100,000, $75,000 and several $50,000 on scratch-off tickets. And there are hundreds of other players who won lower level prizes.”
The Mega Millions® drawing tonight is for a $50 million jackpot. The Natural State Jackpot has grown to $270,000 for tonight’s drawing. Saturday’s Powerball® jackpot stands at $203 million.
