LITTLE ROCK, AR - A Lepanto woman has come forward as the winner of a $3 million prize in the March 14 Mega Millions drawing.

Miranda Huffman brought husband Jeff and other family members with her Tuesday morning when she picked up her check.

She matched five white balls in the drawing for a $1 million prize that was tripled since she also bought the megaplier.

The ticket was bought at Jordan’s Kwik Stop on Highway 135N in Lepanto.

Lottery officials say Huffman told her father first about the win and that she plans to build a home with some of the money.

This is the second highest prize winner in Arkansas lottery history.
