LITTLE ROCK - A Pine Bluff woman is the latest Arkansas lottery player to win $1 million, lottery officials said Tuesday.
Stacy Tackett won the prize by entering a non-winning ticket in the lottery’s Play It Again drawing. She bought the ticket at Harding Street Valero in Pine Bluff.
Lottery officials said Tackett told them she plans to buy a new truck and set up trusts for her children with the prize, and save the rest.
Since lottery ticket sales began in 2009, the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery has provided more than $600 million for in-state college scholarships to Arkansas students, $2 billion in prizes to players and $170 million in commissions to lottery retailers.
