The last person to claim a million dollar prize from the Mega Millions lottery was a woman from Dumas, Arkansas. Linder Mathis told lottery officials that her husband purchased a ticket for her at the Super Stop in Pine Bluff, Arkansas for the January 29 drawing.

Mathis told lottery officials she and her husband don't play the lottery often. The owner of the store told her that he knew she had purchased the winning ticket when he checked surveillance footage after the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery announced that it was purchased at the store. She claimed her two million dollar prize on February 9.

"My husband didn't believe the owner when he told him that we were winners, because we don't play the lottery often. We checked our numbers and discovered that he [the owner] was actually telling the truth," she told lottery officials.

She said her husband told her while she was at the hospital with her daughter, who had just given birth to her first child.

"I was at the hospital with my daughter, who had just given birth to her first child and our fourth grandchild, when my husband called me crying and said we had won $2 million," Mathis told lottery officials.

The store that sold the winning ticket will receive $20,000 in commission. Mathis, who is a grandmother of four, told lottery officials she will use her winnings to pay bills, go on a family vacation, and help her children.
