A Lepanto woman on Tuesday claimed a $3 million Mega Millions prize, the second-largest winning ticket in the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery's history.

Miranda Huffman matched all five white balls but missed the Megaball in the March 14 drawing.

That combination pays out a $1 million prize, but Huffman also bought — for $1 extra — the Megaplier. It turned out to be a good investment in Huffman's case because it increased her winnings threefold to $3 million.

"Mrs. Huffman said it was the first Mega Millions ticket she had ever bought for herself," the lottery said in a statement. "The first person she told was her father and she plans to use the money to build a house."

Huffman bought the ticket at Jordan's Kwik Stop 14 on Arkansas 135 North in Lepanto.

No one won the jackpot in the March 14 drawing, raising Tuesday night's jackpot to $400 million.

Build a house that you can afford to insure and keep up. Save some for old age. Save a *lot* for old age.
