Bixby Resident Wins $15,000 Playing Slots of Fun Scratcher
Second Lottery Win in Three Months!
Oklahoma City (Dec. 1, 2009) – Gloria Fendrick of Bixby is feeling really lucky these days. Over the holiday weekend she purchased a Slots of Fun Scratcher and instantly won $15,000. Earlier in mid-September, she won $40,000 playing the Sterling Silver Scratcher.
“I just feel so blessed and overwhelmed,” Fendrick said.
With her first win, she was able to purchase a new car. Now, with her second surprise cash win, she plans on putting part of the funds in savings and sharing some with her daughter.
Fendrick purchased the $15K winning scratcher at Food Pyramid 66, 10122 S. Memorial, in Tulsa. She was grocery shopping there and just happened to purchase a ticket.
