Million Dollar Ticket Sold at Collinsville
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Even though it wasn't the big jackpot, someone bought a winning Powerball ticket worth $1 million at an Oklahoma convenience store.
The Oklahoma Lottery says the $1 million winning ticket from Wednesday night's drawing was purchased at a 4-Way Stop in Collinsville.
The Oklahoma Lottery says winners have 180 days from the day of the drawing to claim their prize at the state's lottery headquarters in Oklahoma City.
The lottery says two tickets worth $40,000 were also sold in Seminole and Piedmont.
Wednesday night's jackpot was the largest in Powerball history, and officials say tickets sold in Arizona and Missouri will split the $587.5 million prize. That's about $294 million apiece before taxes.
