“I stopped to buy a couple Lottery tickets and asked for a big winner,” said the lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous. “The clerk said: ‘There’s only three of these left.’ Then she handed me three Super Bingo tickets.
“I scratched the tickets off when I got home, and the $300,000 winner was the last one I scratched. I started crying tears of joy and then ran to my neighbor’s house to tell him the good news!”
The player bought his winning ticket at Halftime Food and Beverage, located at 144 North Main Street in Lawton.
“Winning is a wonderful feeling,” said the 62-year-old player. “I am going to be able to share this with my two kids to make their lives a litter easier, and I can finally do a few things to my house that I have been wondering how I’d pay for them.”
The player visited Lottery headquarters Monday to claim the big prize.
