Local man's second chance really pays off

MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) – Instead of tossing his losing lottery ticket in the trash, a Region 8 man decided to “play it again” and wound up a big winner.

Michael Beyen of Mountain Home recently purchased a Cool Turquoise 7s instant ticket at Snappy Mart in his hometown.

When the scratch-off didn’t pay off, he entered it in the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery’s “Play It Again” second chance drawing and won $100,000.

On Thursday Beyen and his wife, Terry, collected the winnings.

The couple says they’re “looking forward to paying bills and getting on with life.”
