A lucky Little Rock man had a big decision to make.
Take $7,000 a week for life or opt for a lump sum payment of $5.75 million? That’s what happens when you win grand prize in Lucky for Life.
The winning ticket, ordered on the Jackpocket app, matched 5 out of 5 white numbers drawn (3-11-13-26-45) and the Lucky Ball (13).
“I’m in shock,” the winner said. He opted for the $5.75 million payout.

This Jackpocket user had a feeling they were going to win something big in the near future. “When I went to bed last night, something was telling me I was going to win. I thought maybe $100 or maybe $1,000.”
Even so, it was only after checking his numbers on the Jackpocket did the news sink in.
The player picked his own lottery numbers which included two numbers he’s been playing on repeat for the last few months.
“There are two numbers I play every time. My daughter told me, “You don’t have to go get a ticket, you do it from your phone.’ I’ve been playing the same two numbers ever since.”
