A Player of Texas Lottery Cross the Boarder of Arkansas To Claim $100,000 Prize

A resident of Texarkana, Texas, recently proved that venturing across the state line can lead to big wins. James Clayton is a twice-weekly lottery player on the Texas side. Officials with the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) announced on Wednesday, April 1st Clayton claimed a life-changing $100,000 instant win prize.

Clayton stopped by the E-Z Mart on North State Line Avenue and purchased two $5 tickets. One ticket yielded a modest $5 win. He did not put the cash into his pocket and decided to buy an ASL 50X the ticket.

Clayton decided to scratch it off right there in his truck. He thought he would win a small prize but as he scratched he saw the hidden symbols and became mistrustful. “I didn’t know how to handle it,” Clayton confessed, referring to the $100,000 top prize. “That’s a lot of money.”

So he thought to go to the store back so he got out of his truck and re-entered the store nervously, Clayton waited for an employee to come outside. He needed confirmation – was this really a life-altering win? The store employee verified Clayton’s good fortune. With a newfound sense of excitement, Clayton headed home to surprise his wife.

Clayton said, “I went home and tried to be cool and casual.” He eventually broke the news with a simple, “Hey, look at this ticket.” Clayton plans to share his newfound wealth with his family and set aside a portion for a secure retirement.
