AMATEUR LOTTERY PLAYER WINS $30K
Broken Arrow Resident Marks Second Week of Lotto Play
Oklahoma City (Dec. 3, 2008) – Two weeks ago Mike Bray of Broken Bow added some zing to his day by playing Hot Lotto with Sizzler. He had no idea he would end up with $30,000 in his pocket.
“I’ve played the Lottery a total of six times,” he says. “I’ve played Powerball three times and Hot Lotto three times.”
Bray purchased his winning ticket at Frontier General, Rt. 4 Box 65-3, in Broken Bow and he chose his winning numbers through Easy Pick. For now, Bray plans on using his new cash toward bills, a nice dinner, and he’ll keep playing the Lottery—especially since its funds help support Oklahoma’s education.
“I love it!” he says. “I can’t believe we haven’t played more considering it supports education.”
