$600K WINNING POWERBALL TICKET SOLD IN SHAWNEE
Jackpot Climbs to $133 Million for Wednesday’s Drawing
OKLAHOMA CITY (Feb. 25, 2008) – The Oklahoma Lottery Commission is seeking the owner of a winning Powerball ticket worth $600,000 sold at a convenience store in Shawnee for Saturday evening’s drawing.
The ticket was sold at Love’s Travel Stop #49, 1005 N. Kickapoo Ave.
The winner correctly matched all five white numbers, missing only the Powerball. The numbers drawn were 8, 13, 23, 29, 47 and the Powerball was 32. The $1 Power Play multiplier was also purchased, tripling the prize to $600,000.
A $30,000 winning ticket was sold at Fun Mart, 6723 N. Meridian Ave. in Oklahoma City, and a $10,000 winning ticket was sold at POPS, 660 W. Highway 66 in Arcadia, Oklahoma.
The winners have 180 days to claim their prizes at Lottery Headquarters, 3817 N. Santa Fe in Oklahoma City.
Because no one correctly matched all six numbers the jackpot has risen to an estimated $133 million for Wednesday’s drawing.
The $200,000 winning ticket sold at Steve’s Short Stop in Midwest City for the Wednesday, Feb. 20, Powerball drawing is still unclaimed.
Net proceeds of all Lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for Oklahoma education. More than $172 million has been contributed to education since November 2005.
Proceeds are used statewide to supplement existing funds for a variety of important purposes, including: teacher compensation and benefits, early childhood development programs, college scholarships, classroom technology and construction of educational facilities.
