Remington Arms Co-Workers Pocket $40k in winnings

Posted: Updated:

(KATV, Source: ASL) Daniel Pinkerton of DeValls Bluff and Allean White of England are both employees of Remington Arms Company in Lonoke. Tuesday, they claimed a Mega Millions prize of $40,000 to share. 

The ticket was purchased at Shell Food Mart on Main Street in England.  The two co-workers are the remaining members of a workplace lottery group (dubbed the Remington Lottery Group), which started with 5 co-workers three years ago at Remington Arms. A spokesperson for the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery says office lottery pools are a fun and economical way to play, and this one really worked out for Daniel and Allean. 

To win, the two bought a $1 Mega Millions  ticket that correctly matched four of the five whiteball numbers (1 to 56) as well as the Megaball number (1 to 46), producing a $10,000 prize.  They wisely added the $1 Megaplier, which multiplied their prize to $40,000.

Daniel said he plans to buy a new vehicle, and Allean will pay off her vehicle and take care of other financial matters. 

As of Tuesday, January 15, 2013:

The Powerball Jackpot is $90 million

Mega Millions is $62 million

The Natural State Jackpot is $75,000

Arkansas 50 50 is $2,342
