Jonesboro, Arkansas – A Jonesboro woman has claimed a $1 million prize from the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery, bringing a wave of excitement to the local community. Opting for anonymity, the fortunate winner revealed her story, which started with a casual $20 purchase for the $1-million cash instant game.

The winning ticket, which transformed an ordinary day into an unforgettable moment, was purchased at a Kum & Go on Southwest Drive in Jonesboro. The winner recounted her routine of playing lottery games frequently but never imagined that a spontaneous stop at the convenience store on her day off would lead to such a significant windfall. “When I hit that—y’all don’t even want to know my first thought,” she shared, reflecting on the shock and joy of discovering her win right in the store.

With the prize money, the winner has practical plans to pay off her truck, land, and handle other financial responsibilities. Despite this life-changing win, she expressed a desire to continue playing the lottery and clarified that retirement is not on her horizon anytime soon. “I’m not old enough to retire,” she said.
