$1 Million Winning Powerball Ticket Sold In Arkoma

ARKOMA (KFSM) -- The Oklahoma Lottery Commission confirmed the winning ticket was sold at J-Sac's convenience store.

The winner, a Fort Smith man, called the convenience store saying he believed he had the five winning numbers.

A store employee was able to then get him in touch with the commission to verify the ticket.

This is not the only big winning lottery ticket the store has sold.

"We've been doing this since the lottery started and we have had a couple of $10,000 jackpots," said Kelli Smith, owner of J-sac's, "In the beginning we had a $250,000 jackpot, so a million dollars is quite a bit more. It's pretty exciting, it's really exciting."

The man, whose identity has not been revealed, will now have to travel to Oklahoma City to cash in his prize.

"It's hard to believe that we made someone a millionaire!", said Smith.
