Powerball Pool Is Sweet for Perry Twelve
Ditch Witch Workers Claim $200,000
This Valentine’s Day held a sweet surprise for a group of 12 Oklahomans who claimed their $200,000 Powerball prize from the Oklahoma Lottery.
The winning ticket, purchased at Sr. Convenience in Perry, matched five white balls to win the $200,000 prize for the pool of workers from Ditch Witch in Perry.
Members of the winning group were Elizabeth Berger, Mustang; Mike Campbell, Perry; Marty Henke, Orlandon; James Herald, Mustang; Mike Ivy, Perry; Kathy Lane, Perry; Courtney Lozier, Stillwater; Cameron McNabb, Perry; Patti Phillips, Mulhall; Dukie Tell, Perry; Anne Sheets, Perry; and George Wales, Stillwater.
The group has had an office pool together since Powerball’s launch. Each person chips in $5 every two weeks and they play 24 sets of numbers for 5 draws. The person who is buying the tickets that week picks the retailer and the group always has the computer pick their numbers. Cameron McNabb bought the winning ticket this time.
Members of the group plan on using their winnings on everything from new heaters and roofs to graduation gifts and savings accounts.
Since the Oklahoma Lottery launched, more than $142 million in prizes has been won playing Oklahoma Lottery games, said Jim Scroggins, Oklahoma Lottery Commission Executive Director. Proceeds from Oklahoma Lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for education purposes and programs at all levels of education, Pre-K to higher education. So far more than $101 million has been transferred to the Oklahoma Education Lottery Trust Fund.
