ADA MAN WINS PLAYING HOT LOTTO WITH SIZZLER
Ada, Okla. (June 23, 2009) – Dustin Sheppard of Ada is celebrating his Hot Lotto win of $30,000. Sheppard tripled his original $10K prize by adding the Sizzler option for only $1.
“Winning a prize this large is one of those things you think is too good to be true,” he said, adding that he regularly plays the Sizzler multiplier.
Sheppard purchased his ticket from T&T Quick Stop at 100 W. Main in Roff. He doesn’t have any immediate plans for his winnings but said he will probably be spending most of it on his children.
