About the Oklahoma Lottery
The Oklahoma Lottery was established in 2003 and the first tickets went on sale two years later. The whole thing was so hotly-debated topic that there was a very long line of customers who wanted to purchase tickets on the first day. It took only several minutes to generate first winner, $2 has been won by Enid.
Although the lottery’s history is not very long, a number of people were awarded big prizes and high jackpots over the years. Jackpots are an ordinary thing there: sometimes they happen on the same day. One of the examples is 2008 when Hot Lotto and Powerball produced lucky winner on that same evening. It was the first time such a lucky coincidence took place.
During the same time that the new law was introduced, another serious decision was made – what to do with the money apart from giving it to lucky winners? The voting had one result, state residents decided that some part of the revenues will be going straight to education and scholarship across the state. Thanks to this, new library books were bought, laboratory equipment was improved and early childhood development was made easier for the children. We can clearly say that not only prize winners take advantage of the lottery, but also students and pupils attending the local schools.
Apart from the multi-state lotteries like Hot Lotto and Powerball which were aforementioned above, Oklahoma gives you an opportunity to play games that are exclusively available in this state. The examples of such games may be Cash 5, Pick 3 and Pick 4.
