ANNIVERSARY RAFFLE WINNERS ANNOUNCED
Lottery’s Successful First Year Culminates With Raffle Drawing
This past Saturday was a lucky one for players in the First Anniversary Raffle. Three hundred and three cash prizes were determined when the Oklahoma Lottery announced the winning Raffle numbers. The winning ticket drawn for the $250,000 top prize was ticket number 04402019 and was purchased at East Side Quick Stop at 1004 East Main in Tishomingo. The two $50,000 winning numbers were 04404599 and 04425130. These tickets were purchased at RN Quick Stop, 3152 North Portland in Oklahoma City and Tri-City 66 at 609 NW 32nd in Newcastle, respectively. All three tickets for the top prize were purchased the first week of Anniversary Raffle sales and claimed at Lottery Headquarters.
As an added bonus to the cash prizes, the Raffle offered an opportunity to enter a drawing for a custom painted Victory Vegas Jackpot Motorcycle. The boot fit for two lucky Oklahomans Saturday night at the International Rodeo Finals where the live drawing was held.
Ten Oklahoma Lottery boots were set up on the stage, two of which contained a key. The pre-selected, (randomly chosen) semi-finalists were asked to choose a boot. The two contestants, who found a key, then did a ribbon pull from the Oklahoma Lottery First Anniversary Cake to determine who would drive off with the bike and who would win the $2,500 cash second place prize.
Claiming the custom painted Victory Vegas Jackpot motorcycle was Carla Sanders of Mustang. Sergio Guerrerolara of Tulsa claimed the $2,500 second place prize in the drawing. All of the remaining semi-finalists received a Lottery Prize Pack.
In addition to the three top prizes, 300 ticket numbers were drawn for $500 each. For a full list of the winning Raffle numbers, players can log on to the Lottery’s website at www.lottery.ok.gov or can check their ticket at any Oklahoma Lottery Retailer.
