Sounds like the $25 million Powerball winner picked yesterday may have been sold at the Crackerbox 25 store in Mayflower. This announcement from the Arkansas Lottery:
A press conference has been scheduled on Monday, January 4 at 10:30 a.m. at the Crackerbox 25 store in Mayflower. Crackerbox owner Lewis Gardner will be present to answer questions, along with Lottery officials. ....
I placed a call to the store, but couldn't get through. The Log Cabin Democrat confirms the ticket was sold at the Mayflower store, but the winner hasn't come forward yet.
The lottery provides a 1 percent commission up to $50,000 on winning tickets of more than $10,000, lottery spokesman Julie Baldridge has confirmed.
The winner can take their winnings over 29 years in 30 annuity payments or take a lump sum of $12.1 million, Powerball has announced.
