LITTLE ROCK, AR – Nobody won the half billion dollar Mega Millions jackpot Tuesday, but one lucky Arkansan won $1 Million with a Mega Millions ticket.
Paulette Hodges of Blytheville matched all five of the white ball numbers and purchased the $1 multiplier. 37 other players across the nation also matched the white ball numbers but failed to purchase the multiplier, giving them only $250,000.
Hodges purchased her ticket at the Flash Market on Main Street in Blytheville. She says she plans to fix up her house and put the rest in the bank.
Friday, the Mega Millions jackpot is expected to be $540 Million.
