Carolyn P. (she prefers to remain anonymous), a new Bismarck, Arkansas resident, picked up a nice $50,000 Powerball prize she won from the Quik Pick ticket she and her husband played on the Powerball New Year's Day drawing.

Carolyn's winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at the 7 T Kwik Stop on 109 Highway 10 in Ola. Carolyn and her husband purchased the ticket on a New Year's Eve trip to Hot Springs after some convincing from a friend. Good thing she listened to her friend that night.

The Search Is On For Arkansas' $1million Winner!

Saturday night's Powerball drawing did not have a jackpot winner, however, the drawing did lead to a 1 million dollar ticket being sold in Arkansas. The ticket was sold at Kroger 644, 1900 N. Polk in Little Rock, for Saturday night’s drawing.  The next drawing for Powerball will be Wednesday, January 10, with an estimated $60 million jackpot.

The winning numbers from Saturday's drawing were: 4, 31, 34, 38 and 61, with the Powerball being 13. The multiplier was two. The player matched the five white balls but didn’t have the Powerball number.

Eric Hagler, Arkansas Scholarship Lottery executive director says,
