$20 gets lucky Greers Ferry woman $50,000

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery's "200 X the Money" game seems to pay off for some in Region 8.

Tina Blackwell of Greers Ferry recently bought one of the $20 tickets at Tobacco World in Higden and instantly won $50,000.

She's the tenth player in the state to win 50k.

Blackwell said Tuesday when she picked up her winnings she plans to pay off a few bills and use the rest to open a business with her sister.

Earlier this month James Maples of Cherry Valley won $50,000 playing the same scratch-off game.
