NORMAN, Okla. - Stephanie Cottrell's having a good day, a winning day.

"Well, I've never played the Powerball and I was like well, why not," Cottrell said.

"When she told me, you know, you won and she didn't give me a total, I was like, don't get excited, don't get excited and then she told me $12, I was like, OK," Stephanie said.

With record sales of over a billion dollars for this drawing, there are a lot of people just like Stephanie, small winners but winners just the same.

As for Stephanie, she said she'll play again and likely spend her winnings on a couple of new tickets.
