FORT SMITH, AR (KAIT) -

A Northeast Arkansas man is thousands richer after buying a ticket on the other side of the state.

Dwight Zuehlsdorff of Blytheville won $25,000 in the "Natural State Jackpot," according to the Arkansas State Lottery.

Zuehlsdorff bought the winning ticket at the Pic N Tote in Fort Smith for $1.

He declined a photo, but told ASL officials he plans to pay off bills and save the rest.

Tickets are still on sale for the estimated $301 million Powerball jackpot. Numbers in that drawing will be held Wednesday night.
