Busy Day for Oklahoma Lottery
Oklahoma Players Claim More than $700,000 in Prizes
This week has been a busy one at Oklahoma Lottery Headquarters with Lottery players claiming more than $700,000 in high-tier prizes won playing Powerball, Oklahoma Cash 5 and the Scratcher game Ruby Red 7’s.
On Monday, Danny J. Herndon of Muskogee claimed $10,000 from playing Powerball. His ticket, which was purchased at Andy’s Convenience Store in Muskogee, was worth $10,000 because it matched the four white balls and the Powerball.
JoAnne Bass of Edmond collected $10,000 as well from a Powerball ticket she purchased at the Homeland at 2205 West Edmond Road in Edmond.
The Scratcher game Ruby Red 7’s was lucky for Frances J. Lord of Bethany who collected a prize of $27,000. She purchased her Scratcher at Albertson’s at 7101 NW 23rd in Bethany.
Prizes were also claimed from last Thursday night’s Oklahoma Cash 5 drawing where two tickets won the top prize of $25,000 taxes paid. Jon Watson’s winning ticket was purchased at the Conoco All Store Store #1555 at 12300 North Pennsylvania in Oklahoma City. Tracy Hamlett of Dill City purchased her winning ticket at the Kwik-n-Eze, 105 South Glenn English in Cordell.
Good fortune struck again in Tuesday night’s Pick 3 and Oklahoma Cash 5 drawings. In Pick 3, 23 tickets matched the straight combination of 9-1-1 drawn to win $500 each. Twenty seven players won $50 for matching the front or back pairs and 48 players won $160 for playing a three way box.
In the Oklahoma Cash 5 drawing, two tickets again matched all five numbers to win the top prize of $25,000 taxes paid. Charles Lindsey of Oklahoma City claimed his prize today at Oklahoma Lottery headquarters. He purchased his winning ticket at Jim’s Express Grocery at 505 North Rockwell in Oklahoma City. The other winning ticket, which has yet to be claimed, was purchased at Tote-A-Poke #5, 601 Pocola Boulevard in
The Oklahoma Lottery encourages players to check their tickets because one of the two tickets worth $600,000 from the Powerball drawing on February 14 has yet to be claimed. Walter Gaster of Ada claimed his $600,000 prize Friday, February 16. The remaining $600,000 ticket was sold at the Expo Truck Center, 2110 West Independence, in Shawnee.
Since the Oklahoma Lottery launched, more than $145 million in prizes have 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 $101 million has been transferred to the Oklahoma Education Lottery Trust Fun.
