Meet One of Arkansas' Lottery-Made Millionaires 
Teresa, Jacksonville | $1M Powerball® Winner

Teresa was on her way home from work when she stopped by her local Lottery retailer in Lonoke County to check her Powerball® ticket. 

"When the clerk told me I won a million dollars, I hit the floor and passed out," said Teresa. 

Teresa eventually made it to her car, where she called her husband and told him the good news. It then took her 45 minutes to make the usual 10-minute drive home because she was so nervous and excited. 

With her Powerball® million, Teresa bought a Mercedes-Benz, remodeled her home, helped her mother and made a nice donation to her church. She's also able to tithe every Sunday, work less and travel to places she's always wanted to go - like Miami!

Teresa plays Powerball® every week, as well as other games like Lucky for Life and scratch-offs. She says she believes she will win again and has big dreams for that day - a new house! #ThisIsWinning
