JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Walnut Ridge woman’s prayers for money were answered during a recent trip to Jonesboro.

Margaret Piatz won $50,000 playing the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery’s Neon 200X game.

Her winning $20 ticket was one of three she bought at Casey’s General Store #3287, 2920 S. Caraway.

The first person she told was her husband. She told lottery officials they had been “praying for a windfall.”

The couple plans to put their prize money toward paying bills and getting reliable transportation.
