$1,000,000 Mega Millions Winner from Blytheville Claims Her Prize; Plans to Remodel Her Home
LITTLE ROCK -- Paulette Hodges of Blytheville claimed a $1,000,000 prize at the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Jonesboro Claim Center. She won the prize in last Friday's Mega Millions draw, which matched all five of her ticket's white ball numbers.
She also purchased the Megaplier option, spending $1 for the ticket and $1 for the Megaplier. Had she not purchased Megaplier, the prize would have been $250,000. There were 39 winners across America with her same numbers, 37 winning $250,000 and only two with the Megaplier winning $1 million.
The ticket was purchased at Flash Market 177, 1305 E. Main Street, in Blytheville. Mrs. Hodges said she told the store clerks as soon as she realized she had won, and that she plans to use a part of her winnings to remodel her home and put the rest of the money in the bank.
