A Wynne man did win big by not giving up on a scratch-off ticket.

James Pugh bought a Bass Pro Shops instant game ticket at the Circle N Exxon in Wynne, but he did not win initially.

However, the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery stated in a news release that Pugh entered the ticket into the Play It Again second chance drawing and won $100,000.

James reportedly told his wife he was going to invest part of the winnings as well as pay off a few bills.
