BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) - One Batesville man is $500,000 richer after playing a $20 200X The Money instant ticket.

According to a press release, Floyd Owens bought his winning ticket at the Duggar's Food Mart in Batesville.

Owens said although he rarely plays $20 instant ticket games, he chose to play and chose the ticket in bin #2 because Owens said two is his lucky number.
