DEWEY RESIDENT CASHES IN PLAYING RUBY RED 7S SCRATCHER
Wins Top Prize of $17,000
Oklahoma City (March 6, 2009) – Red may be Alicia Mills’ new favorite color. The Dewey resident recently won the top prize of $17,000 playing the Oklahoma Lottery’s Ruby Red 7s Scratcher.
Mills plays the Lottery occasionally and bought her winning ticket at Food Pyramid, 2501 SE Washington, in Bartlesville.
“I immediately called my mother and she insisted I go to the retailer to have the ticket checked,” she said.
Mills plans to pay off her car and appreciates the Lottery’s support toward Oklahoma education.
“I think it is pretty wonderful,” she said. “Especially since I have three children.”
