NORMAN RESIDENT WINS TOP PRIZE PLAYING LUCKY DOG SCRATCHER
Oklahoma City (March 20, 2009) – Sonia Wright of Norman won the top prize of $1,000 playing the Oklahoma Lottery’s Lucky Dog Scratcher. The Scratcher features photos of fun-loving canines from across the state.
“I took a double look at the ticket and then felt sick,” said Wright when sharing her first response to winning.
She purchased her scratcher at Circle K at 2316 W. Lindsey in Norman and she plans to treat herself to a nice dinner and do some shopping with her new cash. She said she also appreciates the Lottery helping support Oklahoma education.
“I’m totally for it!”
