SULPHUR, Okla. —
A Sulphur man said he picked his own numbers to win the $2 million Powerball drawing, according to the Oklahoma Lottery.
According to lottery officials, Charles G. from Sulphur claimed his prize on Thursday, September 30, at the Oklahoma Lottery Winner Center in downtown Oklahoma City. He bought a $2 million winning Powerball ticket from last Wednesday night’s drawing at the Snak Shak at 12th and Broadway in his hometown.
Lottery officials did not release his last name.
Charles told officials at the Lottery that he picked his own numbers, just like he always does. It turned out to be a lucky decision for Charles, as he matched 5 out of 5 white balls and added Power Play — a $1 investment that turned a $1 million Powerball prize into $2 million.
Powerball’s jackpot continues to climb. The next drawing will occur on Monday, October 4, and is now at $670 million.
Charles is the 72nd Oklahoma Lottery millionaire, including a Norman woman who won a $2 million Powerball prize on Sept. 20, also adding Power Play to double her winnings.
