$1 million lottery ticket sold in Bryant, prize still not claimed

MegaMillions tickets (Arkansas Scholarship Lottery)

An Arkansas lottery ticket worth $1 million was sold at a gas station in Bryant, but the winner has yet to claim the prize.

Arkansas Scholarship Lottery officials said the winning numbers for the July 1 MegaMillions drawing were 1, 27, 29, 38 and 62. The player matched all five white balls, but not the Megaball number 12.

The ticket was sold at a Road Runner gas station at 23190 Interstate 30 in Bryant, according to a news release.

“We urge all players who purchased tickets at the Bryant Road Runner to check their tickets,” said Eric Hagler, executive director of the lottery. “The winner has 180 days from July 1 to claim the prize.”

If the prize is claimed, it would be the 86th time someone has won at least $1 million from the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery since it was started in 2009.

Retailers receive a 1% commission from the sales of winning lottery tickets, but only if the prize is claimed. The Road Runner gas station is set to receive $10,000 in commission for selling the winning ticket if the winner claims their prize.

The Mega Millions jackpot for the Friday, July 8 drawing is up to $400 million, according to the release. The Powerball jackpot currently stands at $48 million for Saturday night’s drawing. Friday’s Natural State Jackpot is $130,000.
