It's a good way to end the year for one Carlisle woman, who claimed $300,000 from an instant ticket.

On Wednesday, Mandy Vanhouten claimed the top prize that she won playing a $300,000 Fortune instant ticket, which was bought for $10.

The winning ticket was bought at G&B Liquor in Stuttgart.

Vanhouten says she is going to use the prize money "to make her life easier."

G&B Liquor store will also receive a 1 percent commission on the sale.

The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery says 92 cents of every dollar of lottery revenue goes to prizes, scholarships, retailer commissions and other expenses in the state.

Since its inception in 2009, the Lottery has provided more than $724 million in scholarships to Arkansas students of 51 colleges, universities and technical schools in the state.
