OKLAHOMA CITY MAN WINS $25,000 TAXES PAID


Bruce L. Johnson, an Oklahoma City resident, won $25,000 taxes paid playing Oklahoma Cash 5, with a ticket that he thinks he purchased by mistake.
 
Johnson, who works out of Tennessee, but has a home in Oklahoma City, purchased his winning ticket for the May 8th drawing at Q-Mart 4, in Oklahoma City. He just recently checked his ticket online, and realized he won.  Johnson said he “does not check his tickets regularly, but “this will definitely change.”
 
Net proceeds of all lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for Oklahoma education. More than $136 million has been contributed to education since November 2005.
