Oregon Lottery to Present King City Liquor with $85,000 Selling Bonus Check (Photo) - 11/06/18

Tigard woman wins $8.5 million Oregon’s Game Megabucks jackpot

WHO: Oregon Lottery officials

WHEN: 12:30 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018

WHERE: King City Liquor Store, 15745 SW 116th, King City OR

WHAT: Oregon Lottery officials will present an $85,000 selling bonus check to representatives of King City Liquor Store for selling the winning $8.5 million Oregon’s Game Megabucks ticket. Lottery officials will also be handing out a limited number of free Oregon’s Game Megabucks at the event.

BACKGROUND: A legacy Oregon Lottery retailer sold the winning $8.5 million Oregon’s Game Megabucks ticket to a regular customer – marking the second time the store has sold a jackpot ticket.
The King City Liquor Store, which is one of the Lottery’s inaugural retailers, has been one of the most successful retailers in the state, and has a legacy of jackpot wins.
“We had a $23 million Oregon’s Game Megabucks winner back in the 1990s,” said Sheri Daniels, the owner of the store. “It’s very exciting to sell another winning ticket, my dad would have been proud.”
Daniels is the daughter of Leo Stratton, who used his special marketing savvy and experience to revolutionize how the Oregon Lottery sells jackpot games across the state. Stratton passed away five years ago, and Daniels said she continues the store on in his memory.
“We had a lot of fun here with my dad,” Daniels said. “I have worked here for over 40 years, and it’s great to see us sell another winning ticket.”
Tina McClendon of Tigard claimed the $8.5 million prize Oct. 23. She won on a Quick Pick $1 ticket she purchased when she visited the store. McClendon is not planning on attending the event.

VISUALS: Oregon Lottery officials will present an over-sized ceremonial check to representatives of the King City Liquor Store and will also distribute a limited amount of free Oregon’s Game Megabucks tickets to patrons of the store.

Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned over $11 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements. For more information on the Oregon Lottery visit www.oregonlottery.org
