Father’s Day gift turns into $200K lottery prize


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – One lucky dad turned a Father’s Day gift into a $200,000 lottery prize.

Lori Goodner of Mena gave her husband, Dwight, $20 for Father’s Day and suggested he buy some lottery tickets. So he went to the Tobacco Superstore located at 518 Highway 71-South in Mena and bought several tickets, including a $10 $200,000 BONUS scratch-off.

He brought the tickets home and couldn’t believe it when they discovered they had won the last of three top prizes on the $200,000 BONUS game. The couple plans to pay bills and buy a new car with their winnings. 

This year will be a Father’s Day the couple will never forget.

Since retailers receive a 1 percent commission on winning lottery products they sell, the Tobacco Superstore will receive a $2,000 check for selling the $200,000 ticket.
