While millions of Americans were rushing to get their taxes mailed on time on Tuesday, one Oklahoman was getting his pay day.

Steve Trimble won nearly $4 million in the "Hot Lotto" drawing on Tuesday.  After taxes, it's more like $2.5 million.

Despite the big win Trimble says he doesn't really feel that lucky.

"I felt like it was more of a divine intervention than luck, but it's pretty exciting," Steve Trimble said.

Trimble is the first Oklahoman to win over a million dollars playing "Hot Lotto."

Trimble says he plans to travel, buy a new house and possibly start his own business.
