Neither of the Powerball jackpot winning tickets drawn Wednesday night were sold in Oklahoma, but a $1 million ticket was sold in Collinsville, the Oklahoma Lottery Commission said Thursday.
The vendor's identity was not immediately available.
Oklahoma Lottery Executive Commissioner Rollo Redburn said the $1 million prize-winner was one of 58 nationwide. Oklahoma also had two $40,000 winners and four $10,000 winners.
Winning $1 million requires correctly picking all five "white ball" numbers but missing the Powerball number.
The two $40,000 winners picked four of five white balls and paid an extra $1 on a $2 ticket for the Power Play.
The four $10,000 winners also correctly picked four of five white ball numbers but did not buy the Power Play.
Redburn said Oklahoma Lottery ticket sales were up about $7 million for the seven days through Wednesday compared to the previous seven-day period.
Tickets sold in Arizona and Missouri will split the $587.5 million Powerball jackpot from Wednesday's drawing.
