A Little Rock man has won $390,000 in the state lottery, officials said Tuesday.
Robert Norwood Jr., 62, bought the Lucky for Life ticket at Stagecoach Phillips 66, 11615 Cantrell Road in Little Rock, according to a news release.
He had the choice between getting $25,000 a year for life or getting a lump sum of $390,000; he chose the latter.
“I just retired — I may not be around in 20 years,” he told lottery officials.
Tuesday, the day he claimed the prize, is Norwood's birthday, according to the release.
“I hope we’re on a roll,” his wife, Cecilia, reportedly said.
Robert Norwood added: "We’re still soaking it in — we still haven’t touched the ground yet.”
