Jenks Resident Wins $30,000 Playing Poker Showdown
OKLAHOMA CITY (June 3, 2008) – Amy Bauer of Jenks won $30,000 on May 28 playing the Oklahoma Lottery’s Poker Showdown Scratcher.
“I couldn’t believe I won! I couldn’t breathe and my heart was beating so fast,” said Bauer. “Since I don’t play poker, I had to call my sister to confirm that I had a royal flush.”
Bauer purchased her winning ticket at the Kum & Go #844 located at 11030 S. Elm in Jenks. She’s been playing the Lottery for two years and plans to use her winnings toward purchasing a new hybrid car.
How to Play
To win a prize, one of the card combinations on the scratcher must appear in a single hand. A player can win only once in each hand.
Net proceeds of all Lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for Oklahoma education. More than $190 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.
