UPDATE: Lottery Winner Come Forward

Oklahoma City, OK – Collinsville couple wins $1 million lottery prize
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Oklahoma lottery officials say a Collinsville couple has purchased a Powerball ticket worth $1 million.
Officials announced Wednesday that Marta Thirion bought the ticket at a QuikTrip store in Owasso this past weekend.
The ticket matched all five of the white balls, but not the Powerball, for a $200,000 prize. Because Thirion added the PowerPlay multiplier option, which was five, the prize increased to $1 million.
Thirion and her husband, David, say they plan to use their winnings for retirement, buying land for themselves and their children, and taking vacations.
