Bella Vista, AR -- If you were in Bella Vista last week and purchased a powerball ticket from Casey's General Store, you may want to check that stub. Saturday's powerball produced 6 new millionaires nationwide, and one of the tickets was sold right here in Northwest Arkansas. The odds of winning the full million dollar prize are 1-in-5 million. Since 2009, the lottery has raised about half a billion dollars, benefitting 135,000 Arkansas students.
