Arthur Perry Sr. of Van Buren bought a ‘Lucky for Life’ lottery ticket at the Pic-N-Tote located at 2203 Fayetteville Road in Van Buren and won $25,000-a-year-for-life.
Claiming his prize Friday, February 15, he took the cash option of $390,000.
The winning numbers on Thursday, February, 14, drawing were 24-26-32-38-42 with the ‘Lucky Ball’ being 18.
Perry selected all five gold ball numbers without the Lucky Ball number.
“My wife didn’t believe me when I told her that I won, because I’ve previously won $115,000 on the Natural State Jackpot,” Perry stated. “I purchased a car and helped my family with my NSJ winnings.”
Perry is retired and plans to pay bills, relax, and pursue his passion for gospel music with his winnings.
‘Lucky for Life’ is a multi-state game with drawings every Monday and Thursday.
Five numbered balls are drawn from one to 48 and one ‘Lucky Ball’ number is drawn from one to 18.
