Press Release


Ronnie Mitchell, a resident of Tecumseh, Oklahoma, won $10,000 playing Powerball.
Mitchell purchased the winning ticket at EZ Mart, a convenience store located at 37400 45th St. in Shawnee.  He doesn’t have any specific plans for the money yet.
Mitchell has played the Lottery regularly since it began in Oklahoma.  He usually buys his tickets at a different retailer, but stopped at this location because it was getting close to the cut-off time for the 9:59 p.m. drawing.
He picks his numbers randomly and plays them for a while, and switches them if they are not winning.
Net proceeds of all Lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for Oklahoma education.  More than $157 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.
