2 Oklahoma lottery pools win big

Oklahoma LotteryOklahoma Lottery: 2 Oklahoma lottery pools win big

Both are in the Tulsa area: Quality Plating workers get $10,000, and Cost-O-Fab employees rake in $200,000.

Two winning lottery tickets were redeemed Wednesday with the winnings going to employees at two Tulsa-area businesses, according to the Oklahoma Lottery.

Eleven employees at Cost-O-Fab, a Broken Arrow heat exchanger shop, claimed their $200,000 prize at Oklahoma Lottery headquarters. The group matched five numbers but missed the Powerball.

The winning Cost-O-Fab employees were Roy Taylor, Broken Arrow; Charles Downey, Cleveland, Okla.; Richard Baker and Glen Curran, Mannford; Olen Mann and Stephen Patterson, Sand Springs; and David Bennett, Russell Bill, Michael Hopkins, Raul Sanchez and Larry Walker, all of Tulsa.

The group has played the lottery regularly since it launched in Oklahoma, with each member contributing $5 per draw. The group already has bought tickets for Wednesday's Powerball drawing.

Meanwhile, 11 employees at Quality Plating, a Tulsa-based company that plates aircraft parts, claimed a $10,000 winning ticket.

Members of the Quality Plating pool include Sharron Dodson, Broken Arrow; Reginald Collins, Claremore; Larry Young and Nellie Young, Sand Springs; and Felicia Brown, Richard Craft, Alex Illingsworth, Melissa Jarvis, Timmy Steward, Charles Wynn and Diane Wynn, all of Tulsa.

The group has played the lottery regularly for eight years. They played in Kansas before the Oklahoma Lottery was established.

The group plays only on Saturdays until the jackpot reaches a higher level, then they play twice a week.

A $10,000 winning ticket remains unclaimed. It was sold at QuikTrip No. 102 at 6008 S. 49th West Ave. in Tulsa.
