Daughter Follows Father In Winning Jackpot

LITTLE ROCK –Some say like father, like daughter. This proved to be true for a Ward family. On Tuesday Emily Rathbun claimed a $19,702 lottery prize from the $5 fast play game, AR Progressive Jackpot.

Rathbun’s father, Jessie Joyner, won $37,432 two months ago on the same fast play game. They each purchased their winning tickets from Parrott Bay Trading Post, 1998 Heber Springs Road in Tumbling Shoals.

“I don’t play the lottery often but decided to buy a ticket while waiting in line at the store,” she said. “When I realized that I won, I didn’t believe it! My dad was the first person I told about my win. He’s been playing the lottery since 2009.”     MORE
