Man wins 'Jumbo' lottery prize

TUCKERMAN, AR (KAIT) - A Jackson County man celebrated the Fourth of July with a big bang.

Michael Blevins of Tuckerman won $350,000 playing the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery.

He bought his winning "Jumbo Bucks Bonus" $10 scratch-off ticket at Jordan's Kwik Stop #7, 2720 Hwy. 367 North in Newport.

Blevins said he first told the store clerk about the win.

Then they both "started shouting when she confirmed the ticket was a winner," he told the ASL.
