HENRYETTA RESIDENT CLAIMS $25,000 PRIZE
Nuckolls wins playing Oklahoma Cash 5
Chasity Nuckolls of Henryetta claimed the first $25,000 taxes-paid top prize in Oklahoma Cash 5 Wednesday at Oklahoma Lottery Headquarters.
Nuckolls purchased her winning Oklahoma Cash 5 ticket at the Love’s on Main Street in Henryetta. Nuckolls said that she always purchases her tickets there.
“I’ve been playing Powerball since the Lottery started, but this was my first time to play Oklahoma Cash 5,” Nuckolls said. “For Powerball, I always play one draw with Power Play.”
When asked what she planned on doing with her winnings, Nuckolls said she plans on using it as a down payment on a house.
Since the Oklahoma Lottery launched, more than $131 million in prizes has been won playing Oklahoma Lottery games, said Jim Scroggins, Oklahoma Lottery Commission Executive Director.
“It is great to see Oklahomans like Chasity who are enjoying playing Lottery games,” said Jim Scroggins, Oklahoma Lottery Executive Director. “But the best part is knowing that the real winner is Oklahoma Education with more than $65 million having been transferred so far.”
