The third drawing was the charm as one lucky ticket purchased in Henryetta won the $25,000 taxes-paid top prize in Tuesday’s Oklahoma Cash 5 drawing.
“Besides last night’s grand prize winner there has been numerous other second and third tier prizes won,” said Jim Scroggins, Executive Director, Oklahoma Lottery Commission. “We are very pleased with the early participation in this game.”
With only three drawings held, Oklahomans have won more than $125,000 playing Oklahoma Cash 5. This includes one hundred twenty three (123), $500 winners and more than 3,200 third tier winners.
To play Oklahoma Cash 5, players select five numbers 1 through 36. Players will win by matching 2, 3, 4 or 5 numbers. Players who match all five numbers will receive a check for $25,000 taxes-paid. Each play is $1 with the option to play up to five times per play slip. Overall odds of winning are 1 in 7.6 with prizes ranging from a free ticket to the $25,000 top prize.
