Couple bought $2.25m lottery ticket in Conway
But the 1130 Eastman Road store is also known as a hot spot for lottery scratch tickets. About two months ago, the store sold a winning scratch ticket worth $250,000, and several years ago, a $30,000 scratch ticket was sold, Mark Keenan said.
"For 20 years, our motto was, 'We're due,'" Keenan said.
The couple claimed the prize under the Rocky Mountain King Revocable Trust and the Rocky Mountain Queen Revocable Trust.
The winners chose the cash option payout with a lump sum worth about $1.2 million before taxes.
The winning numbers were 20-21-28-33-35, with the MegaBall 6.
Keenan said he knows the couple well, but he, too, wouldn't divulge their names.
Keenan got word that his store sold the winning ticket while fishing in his boat on a small pond in Maine. The store receives $22,500 for selling the ticket, according to lottery officials.
The Keenans will give some of the money to local charities and some to the store's five employees during the holidays, he said.
"I'm also going to put down a new floor," he said.
