Oklahoma Man Wins $10,000 Prize In Southwest City
An Oklahoma man who bought two "$100 Million Cash Spectacular" Scratchers tickets won $10,000 on Sept. 24. Tommy Spradlin, 59, of Grove, Okla., said he bought the tickets at The Mill in Southwest City, and he played the tickets when he got home. He said he couldn’t believe what he saw.
"I thought there was a mistake," he said.
Spradlin, who is a store manager for a paint store, said he plans to pay bills with his prize money and save what is left.
The new "$100 Million Cash Spectacular" game, which officially started on Sept. 10, has the highest payout in the Lottery’s history and offers more than $102.5 million in cash prizes, including 10 top prizes of $1 million. More than 75.14 percent of the $10 game’s sales will be returned to players as prizes.
