OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Edmond woman has claimed a $1 million winning ticket from the Oklahoma Lottery.
Oklahoma Lottery officials say Lisa Nguyen claimed her $1 million prize Monday at the state's lottery headquarters in Oklahoma City. Nguyen correctly matched five white balls in Friday night's Mega Millions drawing for a $250,000 prize. She also added the Megaplier for an extra dollar that multiplied her winnings to $1 million.
After taxes, Nguyen received a check for $710,000. She told lottery officials she plans to save the winnings to help pay for her children's education.
The payment to Nguyen is the 34th prize of $1 million or more for a lottery ticket purchased in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma Lottery officials say since its inception in 2005, more than $558 million has been contributed to education.
