LAWTON RESIDENT WINS TOP PRIZE PLAYING BLAZING HOT $100s SCRATCHER
Oklahoma City (May 26, 2009) – Adolph Robinson Jr. of Lawton may not look forward to the summer’s heat but he doesn’t mind the flush from celebrating a top prize win of $10,000 playing the Oklahoma Lottery’s Blazing Hot $100s Scratcher.
Robinson purchased his winning ticket at EZ Go #36 at 1 NW 67th St. in Lawton. Upon learning he had won, Robinson’s first question was to ask where he could cash his ticket—immediately!
“I recently built a new home so I’ll probably use some of the money toward that and new furniture,” he said.
Robinson plays the Lottery knowing that a portion of the proceeds helps support Oklahoma education. His two children recently graduated college.
