TULSA WOMAN CLAIMS $20K POWERBALL PRIZE
Second Winning Ticket Sold in Tulsa Worth $200K Remains Unclaimed
OKLAHOMA CITY (June 26, 2008) – Betty Johnson of Tulsa won $20,000 through last night’s Powerball drawing, but the owner of a second winning ticket worth $200K remains unclaimed.
Johnson, a Lottery player since its launch, purchased her winning ticket at Challette located at 3163 Charles Page Boulevard in Tulsa. Her ticket was an Easy Pick.
“Right now I don’t have any plans for my winnings,” she said. “When I first realized I had won, I thought about everything I would like to do and it made my mind spin.”
Johnson said she encourages others to play because the money supports education.
“When some of the people I work with learned I had won, they went out and bought tickets.”
The Oklahoma Lottery is seeking the owner of a second winning Powerball ticket from last night’s drawing worth $200,000. The ticket was purchased at the G&A Stop at 2301-F W. Edison in Tulsa.
The winning numbers were 14-21-25-45-53 and the Powerball was 9. The Power Play multiplier was 2. Powerball players should check their tickets for these winning numbers, and if they have the winning ticket, they should claim their prize at the Oklahoma Lottery Commission offices.
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.
Net proceeds of all Lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for Oklahoma education. More than $193 million has been contributed to education since November 2005.
Proceeds are used statewide to supplement existing funds for a variety of important education purposes, including: teacher compensation and benefits, early childhood development programs, college scholarships, classroom technology and construction of educational facilities.
