Billy Bealer is one lucky man.
The Pine Bluff resident on July 29 won $250,000 from the Natural State Jackpot game. Then on Tuesday, less than two weeks after his first win, Bealer struck gold again when he claimed a winning $1,000,000 Riches ticket, according to a news release from the Arkansas Lottery Commission.
Bealer bought the winning Natural State Jackpot ticket from a Citgo gas station on 28th Street in Pine Bluff and the $1 million instant winner at the Shell Food Mart, the release states.
What will Bealer do with the money? In a statement he gave to the commission, Bealer said he used $250,000 to pay his bills and plans to invest and save the $1 million.
The release also adds there are two $1 million top prizes remaining in the $1,000,000 Riches game. The Natural State Jackpot, a $1-per-play game, holds its drawings Monday through Saturday at 8 p.m.
