MEEKER RESIDENT CASHES IN WINNING $25K PLAYING OKLAHOMA CASH 5
Oklahoma City (March 19, 2009) – Margaret Seymour of Meeker claims she’s unlucky. After winning $25,000 taxes paid from playing Oklahoma Cash 5, she may change her mind.
“This was only my third or fourth time to play Oklahoma Cash 5,” said Seymour.
She purchased her winning ticket at the Rainbow Fuel Stop, 101 S. Dawson, in Meeker.
“It’s one of our hometown businesses and I want to support them,” said Seymour. “I have never purchased a lottery ticket anywhere else.”
She received her winning numbers through Easy Pick and believes it’s a good thing that the Oklahoma Lottery helps supports Oklahoma education.
“I’m not sure what I’ll do with the cash,” said Seymour. “I checked my numbers online and was so excited to win. I was in disbelief until I claimed my prize.”
