Two $40,000 Winning Powerball Tickets Sold in Newport and Hope

Wednesday's winning numbers: 1 - 6 - 8 - 12 - 35, PB 3. Jackpot rolls to $50-million for Saturday's drawing.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) has announced two big winners in last night's Powerball drawing.

Both won $40,000 by matching four white balls and the Powerball. The usual prize of $10,000 for the match was quadrupled since the players also paid for the Power Play option.

Wednesday night's winning numbers were: 1 - 6 - 8 - 12 - 35, PB 3.

One of the winning tickets was sold at the Hope Quick Mart on East Third Street and the other at Jordans Kwik Stop 4 on Malcolm Avenue in Newport.  

Nationwide, no one won the Powerball jackpot of $40-million, which has increased to $50-million for Saturday's draw.

The ASL says only two weeks ago, a Hope Powerball player won $10,000, "so Hempstead County is getting luckier and luckier."

All players who bought Powerball tickets at the Newport or Hope locations are urged to check their numbers against the winning numbers to see if their ticket is the lucky one. 

Powerball tickets cost two-dollars each.
