Hominy Resident Wins $30,000 Playing Powerball with Power Play
Oklahoma City (Feb. 4, 2010) – Lisa Brixie of Hominy doesn’t play the Oklahoma Lottery often, but when she does—it pays off! She recently won $30,000 playing Powerball with Power Play.
Brixie purchased her winning Powerball ticket at Total Stop, 501 E. 1st Street, in Hominy. For only $1 more she purchased Power Play, which tripled her original $10,000 win. She received her winning numbers via Quick Pick.
“I play every Wednesday and Saturday, and look who wins,” said Lisa’s husband Bobby.
According to Lisa, she’s going to keep playing and always choose the Power Play option.
“You can’t win if you don’t play,” she said.
The Brixie’s have a son in college and a daughter that will soon start. They plan to use part of the money toward tuition.
The couple plays the Lottery knowing that a portion of its proceeds helps benefit Oklahoma education.
“It’s a great idea,” said Lisa.
