BARTLESVILLE MAN WINS $200,000 FATHERS DAY GIFT
Latest Powerball winner surprises lottery officials by mailing the winning ticket
OKLAHOMA CITY – A Bartlesville man redeemed a winning Powerball ticket this week worth $200,000. Danny Stewart, who purchased his ticket at Murphy USA (3880 SE Green County Rd.), surprised lottery officials by mailing the winning ticket to Oklahoma Lottery Commission headquarters to claim his prize.
“It’s surprising for the ticket to come to us in the mail because it’s such a large prize,” said Jim Scroggins, executive director of the Oklahoma Lottery Commission.
Prizes of $5,001 or more must be claimed through Lottery Headquarters. Winners must fill out a claim form and present two forms of valid identification. The OLC must be able to verify the winners identity and Social Security Number, so at least one form of ID must include a SSN.
Claim forms can be obtained at any Lottery retailer, or downloaded from the Lottery website at www.lottery.ok.gov. Cash prizes under $600 can be redeemed at any participating retailer across the state without a claim form.
The Powerball jackpot is now at $66 million. Powerball numbers are drawn Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Net proceeds of all lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for Oklahoma education. More than $122 million has been contributed to education since November 2004.
