OKLAHOMA CITY (March 13, 2008) – The Oklahoma Lottery Commission is seeking the owner of a winning Powerball ticket worth $200,000 sold at a convenience store in Duncan for Wednesday’s drawing.
The ticket was sold at Chisholm Corner, 2003 W. Elk Ave.
The winner correctly matched all five regular numbers, missing only the Powerball. The numbers drawn were 12, 19, 30, 34, 36 and the Powerball was 8.
Three $10,000 winning tickets were also sold in Oklahoma: in Edmond at Flash Mart, 1414 S. Santa Fe Ave.; in Lawton at Stripes, 5120 W. Gore Blvd.; and in Muskogee at Stop & Go, 803 N. York St.
The winners have 180 days to claim their prizes at Lottery Headquarters, 3817 N. Santa Fe in Oklahoma City.
Because no one correctly matched all six numbers the jackpot has climbed to an estimated $275 million for the Saturday drawing, the 7th largest in Powerball history.
Net proceeds of all Lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for Oklahoma education. More than $175 million has been contributed to education since November 2005.
Proceeds are used statewide to supplement existing funds for a variety of important purposes, including: teacher compensation and benefits, early childhood development programs, college scholarships, classroom technology and construction of educational facilities.
