Nearly 15,000 Players Win 10 Times Their Original Powerball Prize; Lottery Officials Still Searching for Three Big-Prize Winners

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - March 13, 2006 - Nearly 15,000 Oklahoma Lottery Powerball players saw their cash prizes increased by 10 times their original amount as the Power Play multiplier "10" was randomly selected in Saturday night's drawing. It is the first time the multiplier "10" has been selected in the month-long Power Play 10X promotion, which began March 1.

For an extra dollar, Power Play gives players a chance to multiply their Powerball winning prizes (not including the jackpot) by 2,3,4 or 5 times the original amount. During the month of March, a special Power Play 10X promotion is allowing Powerball winners to multiply their original prize amounts by up to 10 times and win up to $2,000,000.

Although there were no jackpot winners in the March 11, 2006 drawing, thousands of Oklahoma Lottery Powerball players cashed in on the 10X promotion, including:

  • 43 players who won $100 for matching four white balls; 36 selected the Power Play option for an extra dollar and won $1,000.
  • 54 players who won $100 for matching three white balls plus the Powerball number; 42 players chose the Power Play option and saw their original prize increase to $1,000.
