How would it feel to be the first-ever big winner for a new lottery game? LOTTO in Arkansas had been looking for its first top-prize winner since the game first launched in the state on September 18, 2022.
So when a Jackpocket player in Sebastian County, Arkansas found out that she won the coveted grand prize...on her first LOTTO ticket ever... she says she was in shock.
"I usually play Natural State Jackpot or Lucky for Life, but [ordered] the LOTTO ticket on a whim,” the winner said. “The LOTTO jackpot looked high, and since I’ve never played the game before, I decided to try that one."
Jackpocket notified this winner by email but it wasn't until a congrats call that the news sunk in.
"I thought it was a spam call because it was from New York,” she said. “After listening to the voicemail, I called them back and was shocked when they said I was the jackpot winner. I first told my husband, but he didn’t believe me because we never win anything.”
The winner plans to use her prize winnings to spend more time with family, including on a new family home. 2023 is shaping up to be a great year!
The lucky Quick Pick number combination that won it all? 20, 12, 27, 10, 6 and 21.
Played in Arkansas, won in Arkansas.
Try your luck and grab your LOTTO ticket before the next drawing!
