OKMULGEE RESIDENT CLAIMS $50,000 PRIZE
Wynn wins playing Powerball
William Wynn, Jr. of Okmulgee recently claimed a $50,000 Powerball prize for the November 25th drawing. Wynn won by matching the five white balls, and because he selected the Power Play option, his prize was multiplied by 5.
Wynn purchased his winning Powerball ticket at Kum & Go #856 at 303 South Wood Drive in Okmulgee.
“I buy my tickets at the two Kum & Go’s in town because they have the best service,” Wynn said. “I’ve played since the Lottery started.”
Wynn said there was no great science to picking his numbers; he just picked a set of numbers and has stuck with them.
When asked what he planned on doing with his winnings, Wynn said he plans on buying Christmas presents for his six grandkids and he and his wife are planning a trip to Las Vegas.
Since the Oklahoma Lottery launched, more than $139 million in prizes has been won playing Oklahoma Lottery games, said Jim Scroggins, Oklahoma Lottery Commission Executive Director.
Proceeds from Oklahoma Lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for education purposes and programs at all levels of education, Pre-K to higher education. So far more than $86 million has been transferred to the Oklahoma
Education Lottery Trust Fund.
