A Misprinted Ticket Brings Unexpected Win
Oklahoma City (Jan. 22, 2009) – Jason Berry of Newalla is celebrating his recent win of $20,000 playing Powerball with Power Play. He purchased his ticket at Stella Grocery Inc., 18001 SE 149th, in Newalla.
Berry had intended to buy a regular Powerball ticket but the clerk accidentally printed his ticket with the addition of Power Play. Going with the flow, Berry purchased the ticket anyway. Little did he know, the extra dollar he spent on Power Play would turn his $10K win into $20K.
By adding Power Play, Lottery players can multiply their winnings up to five times.
