WATTS CONVENIENCE STORE “HITS” AGAIN
$600K Winning Powerball Ticket Sold At Station 2, the Same Retailer
that Sold a $200K Winner Two Weeks Prior
Station 2, a small convenience store in northeastern Oklahoma, is quickly earning a reputation as a Powerball powerhouse after selling a $600,000 winning ticket only two weeks after selling a $200,000 winning ticket.
Station 2 is located at 137 S.H. 59 in Watts, Oklahoma.
The winning ticket correctly matched the first five numbers, missing only the Powerball, but with the Power Play option the total prize won was $600,000. There were two other $600,000 winners in the Dec. 8 drawing, both from Pennsylvania.
The winning numbers were 4, 8, 25, 29, 31 and the Powerball was 41. The Power Play multiplier was 3.
The owner of the winning ticket has 180 days from the Saturday, Dec. 8 drawing to claim their prize at Lottery Headquarters, located at 3817 N. Santa Fe in Oklahoma City.
Edward Proctor, a resident of Springdale, Arkansas, was the $200,000 winner from the Nov. 24 Powerball drawing. Proctor’s ticket was purchased at Station 2 in Watts. He plans to use a portion of the money to pay for his son’s college education.
The jackpot for Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing is now estimated at $33 million.
