Two individuals claimed $100,000 prizes – both off $5 “25X The Cash” instant tickets.
Gina Blann from McNeil purchased her ticket at the Tobacco Warehouse, 1085 Fairview Road in Camden. She plans to pay off some bills.
The second $100,000 winner was Christine Draper from Casa, who bought her scratch-off at Doublebee’s, 209 Fourche Ave. in Perryville. She plans on using her prize on her three grandkids.

“At the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery we often hear people say that no one who lives in small Arkansas towns ever wins the Lottery,” said Lottery Director Bishop Woosley. “We have winners from all over the state every day. However, in one day we had five winners from five different small towns in various areas of the state claim significant prizes. And they all plan to do something different with their prize money.”
The body was found after a boating accident Friday night.
