One $1 million Powerball ticket sold in Oklahoma
OKLAHOMA — The $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot — the largest lottery prize in history — will be split at least three ways.
The winning tickets were sold in Chino Hills, California; Munford, Tennessee; and in Melbourne Beach, Florida, according to state lottery officials.
There are also a few Oklahomans who won smaller – yet large – sums of cash from the Powerball lottery.
One Oklahoman was able to match five of the white balls, winning $1,000,000.
Officials with the Oklahoma Lottery Commission tell KFOR the lucky winner purchased the ticket from a Quick Trip in Tulsa.
Three Oklahomans matched four white balls and the Powerball, winning $50,000 a piece.
Four other Oklahomans also matched four white balls and the Powerball, but took a chance on the Power Play, and won $100,000 a piece.
The winning numbers were 08, 27, 34, 04 and 19, and the Powerball was 10.
The odds of winning the record jackpot were 1 in 292 million.
