JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A quick stop at a local convenience store turned into a big payout for a Region 8 man.

Danny McCollum of Forrest City stepped forward Tuesday to claim Saturday's $210,000 Natural State Jackpot prize.

McCollum bought his winning ticket at Jordan’s Kwik Stop #42, 2335 N. Washington, in his hometown.

The NSJ game is a “terminal-generated draw game” similar to Powerball, according to the Arkansas State Lottery, but it is only played in the state. Drawings are held Monday through Saturday at 8 p.m.
