Region 8 store wins big in lottery

NEWPORT, AR  (KAIT) – Tobacco Superstore #4 is $10,000 richer.  Not because they sold more cigarettes, but because they sold a winning million dollar Diamond Dazzler lottery ticket.

On Friday the owners and employees collected their selling bonus.

Any lottery prize of $10,000 or more results in two winners:  the winning player collects the payout and the retailer who sold the ticket gets a 1% selling bonus.

Dianne Lamberth of the Arkansas Lottery Commission said, "the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery produces millions of dollars in scholarships for deserving Arkansas students.  But it is also good for local business such as Tobacco Superstore."
