Conway woman wins $250,000 lottery

A Conway woman won $250,000 on a lottery ticket purchased at Sixty 4 Country Store in Conway, the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Commission announced Tuesday.

 

Shurika Barker, who declined a photo opportunity, bought a Diamond 7’s — $10 game ticket.

Sixty 4 Country Store is located at 354 Highway 64 East.

Lottery spokesman Kevin McCarthy said Barker cashed the winning ticket Tuesday, but he did not have information about when the ticket was purchased.

The lottery’s Powerball jackpot is at $400 million, and the Mega Millions jackpot is at $154 million.

The Diamond 7’s game prize range is $10 to $250,000, and winning odds are one in 2.97.
