BROKEN BOW MAN WINS $10K PLAYING BANK ROLL SCRATCHER
OKLAHOMA CITY (August 6, 2008) – William Dorries of Broken Bow won $10,000 playing the Oklahoma Lottery’s Bank Roll Scratcher. He purchased his winning ticket at Broken Bow Short Stop at 21 North Park.
“I looked at the ticket for 10 minutes and just couldn’t believe it,” said Dorries.
He has played the Lottery occasionally since its launch but he’s recently had an impressive lucky streak.
After winning $10K playing the scratcher game, Dorries visited a nearby casino and won an additional $10K. Then to his amazement, he learned his wife had won $4,500 at a casino earlier in the day. Their total winnings came to $24,500 for the day.
“It’s great that the Lottery supports Oklahoma’s education,” he said. “We’ll be using our winnings toward new school clothes for our son and just having fun.”
Net proceeds of all Lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for Oklahoma education. More than $209 million has been contributed to education since November 2005.
Proceeds are used statewide to supplement existing funds for a variety of important education purposes, including: teacher compensation and benefits, early childhood development programs, college scholarships, classroom technology and construction of educational facilities.
