Jonesboro woman buys $1 million lottery ticket

Posted By on Wed, Mar 7, 2018 at 5:42 PM

Laverne Clines of Jonesboro bought a $20 lottery ticket from a Doublebees in Jonesboro and it turned out to be a $1 million winner.

An Arkansas Lottery news release said she'll take care of family first. Tax will take a bite of about a third of the money off the top. The retailer gets a $10,000 bonus.

The Million Dollar Winner game with instant prizes from $20 to $1 million for $20 tickets began Dec. 5 and some $22 million in prizes are theoretically yet to be claimed (some winners may have already been sold but unclaimed). Odds of a winner are 1 in three. Odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 600,000.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
