BROKEN ARROW RESIDENT CLAIMS $200,000 POWERBALL TICKET
Oklahoma City (Nov. 10, 2008) – Today Don Davis of Broken Arrow claimed his winning Powerball ticket worth $200,000 from last Saturday’s drawing. He purchased his ticket at Quik Trip located at 4106 S. Garnett Drive in Tulsa.
Davis plays the Lottery every week and received his winning numbers through Easy Pick.
“I didn’t watch the drawing but later that night I went online to check my numbers,” he said. “I had to check my numbers about 10 times. I just couldn’t get my mind wrapped around the whole thing.”
Davis says he plans to use his winnings toward paying bills and then he’ll put the rest in savings. He thinks it’s good that the Lottery helps support Oklahoma’s education.
“I have two kids,” he said. “It’s a win-win for everyone.”
