Oklahoma Lottery Seeks Owners of Tickets Worth Millions
OKLAHOMA CITY (July 3, 2008) – Starting the holiday weekend with a bang, the Oklahoma Lottery is seeking the owners of jackpot winning Powerball and Hot Lotto tickets from last night’s drawing.
A Powerball ticket worth $85M was purchased at Stripes #2372 at 700 E. Broadway in Altus. The winning numbers were 4-33-46-48-52 and the Powerball was 17. The Power Play multiplier was 5.
A Hot Lotto ticket worth $2.1M was purchased at the 1st Street Shell at 101 W. Main in Henryetta. The winning numbers were 6-9-23-24-39 and the Hot Ball was 10.
This is the third jackpot winning Powerball ticket sold in Oklahoma since January 2006. The WJW Investment Trust claimed the first jackpot of $101.8 million in August 2006 and Don and Joyce Harvey of Muldrow claimed a jackpot prize of $105.8 million in June 2007.
This is the second jackpot winning Hot Lotto ticket sold in Oklahoma since the launch of the game in January 2008. Steve Trimble of Oklahoma City claimed the first Hot Lotto jackpot worth $3.8 million in April of this year.
Powerball and Hot Lotto players should check their tickets for the winning numbers, and if they have either winning ticket, they should claim their prize at the Oklahoma Lottery Commission offices. The Oklahoma Lottery offices will be closed July 4 in observance of Independence Day.
Players can obtain winning numbers on the Oklahoma Lottery website, www.lottery.ok.gov, or by visiting their nearest Lottery retailer. Prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing.
Both retailers will also be awarded bonus checks for selling jackpot winning tickets. Stripes will receive $25,000 for selling the jackpot winning Powerball ticket and 1st Street Shell will receive $5,000 for selling the jackpot winning Hot Lotto ticket.
