TULSA MAN WINS GAS FOR A YEAR PLAYING FILL‘ER UP® SCRATCHER
OKLAHOMA CITY (May 22, 2008) – Marcus Smith, a Tulsa resident, won gas for a year valued at $2,500 on May 20 playing the Oklahoma Lottery’s Fill‘er Up® Scratcher.
Smith purchased his winning ticket at Kwick Stop located at 1707 Southwest Boulevard in Tulsa.
“I’ve been playing the lottery for a couple of years, usually two or three times a week,” he said. “I’m glad the Lottery supports Oklahoma’s education.”
Customers must reveal three “Gas Can” play symbols in any row, column or diagonal to win the prize shown in the “prize box.” If the player reveals a “Gas” prize symbol in the “prize box,” they win gas for a year.
The Fill‘er Up Scratchers cost $1 and can be purchased at any Oklahoma Lottery retailer.
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 purposes, including: teacher compensation and benefits, early childhood development programs, college scholarships, classroom technology and construction of educational facilities.
