Hoxie woman wins $100,000 with losing lottery ticket

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A trip to the Tobacco Superstore in Hoxie eventually paid off for a local lottery player.

While at the store, Judy Kern bought a "Fully Loaded" instant game ticket by the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery.

But, she didn't win.

Instead of trashing the ticket, Kern entered it in the "Play It Again Second Chance Drawing."

That non-winning ticket ultimately won her $100,000.

When asked what she plans to do with the money, Kern told lottery officials she plans to pay off some bills and add to her savings.
