FOYIL MAN WINS $10K PLAYING POWERBALL
Unique Numbers Strategy Pays Off
Oklahoma City (Jan. 13, 2009) – Anthony Modesto of Foyil plays Powerball and picks his numbers methodically—this time around, his strategy brought him $10,000.
A Lottery player since “day one,” Modesto chose his numbers by laying out bingo chips, one through 75, and then randomly chose chips. He says he plays the same numbers every time and for now, he’s decided to put his money in the bank.
He purchased his winning ticket from Okie Mart at 12601 Highway 66 South in Claremore.
