LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (News release) – “I think I won a lot of money,” Kimberly Smith of Jonesboro cautiously told her son Sunday night after she scratched the $10 Big Money Multiplier instant ticket that she’d bought at the Kum & Go on Jonesboro’s busy Johnson Avenue. She was right – she’d won one of this scratch-off game’s quarter-million dollar top prizes!
With her four children and several other family members on hand to claim the win in Little Rock, Ms. Smith said she had some basic needs in mind: A home for her family and a reliable car.
“I’ve never had more than $3,000 to my name at one time,” she explained. With her stunning $250,000 win, she has quite a bit more than that on hand now to take care of herself and her family.
