OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma Lottery is seeking the owner of a $2 million winning Powerball ticket.
The winning ticket is from Saturday night’s drawing and was purchased in Shawnee. The winner successfully matched five of five white balls, winning $1 million. But because the purchaser added the Powerplay feature for an additional $1, the prize doubled to $2 million.
The drawing marks the 42nd time a winner in Oklahoma has won a prize of $1 million dollars or more. Four of those winners have been lucky enough to hit the Powerball jackpot since the Oklahoma Lottery’s launch.
Winners have 180 days from the day of the drawing to claim their prize at the Oklahoma Lottery headquarters in Oklahoma City.
