Lepanto woman wins Mega Millions prize in Arkansas

Posted: Updated:

LEPANTO, Ark. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Lottery officials say a northeast Arkansas woman has claimed a $3 million prize.

Arkansas lottery officials say Miranda Huffman of Lepanto bought the winning Mega Millions ticket at Jordan's Kwik Stop in Lepanto. Huffman says it was the first Mega Millions ticket she'd ever purchased for herself.

Huffman missed out on the $353 million Mega Millions jackpot by just one number. But she did match five numbers - and purchased the $1 Megaplier option- and won $3 million.

Officials say it's the second-largest prize in the history of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery.
