COLLINSVILLE WOMAN WINS $15K PLAYING OKLAHOMA BINGO SCRATCHER
Oklahoma City (July 14, 2008)— Stephanie Yarber won $15,000 in cash playing the Oklahoma Bingo Scratcher from the Oklahoma Lottery. She purchased her ticket from the E-Z Mart at 1820 W. Broadway St. in Collinsville.
Yarber said she plays the lottery occasionally but since her daughter had good luck with tickets from E-Z Mart, Yarber decided to buy a few Oklahoma Bingo Scratchers when getting gas.
“I thought I had only won $10 but when I went back in to the store, they told me I had won big,” she said.
“I think it is great that the Lottery supports education,” Yarber said.
Net proceeds of all Lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for Oklahoma education. More than $193 million has been contributed to education since November 2005.
Proceeds are used statewide to supplement existing funds for a variety of important education purposes, including: teacher compensation and benefits, early childhood development programs, college scholarships, classroom technology and construction of educational facilities.
