OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma Lottery officials said a winning $2 million Powerball ticket was sold at a convenience store in Oklahoma City.
The lottery said the ticket was purchased at OnCue Express on Northwest 23rd Street. The winner successfully matched five of five white ball numbers in Wednesday's night drawing. The prize was increased to $2 million because the purchaser bought the Power Play option for an extra dollar.
The lottery said the winner has not yet come forward. Winners have 180 days from the day of the drawing to claim their prize at Oklahoma Lottery headquarters in Oklahoma City.
It's the 25th prize of $1 million or more paid by the Oklahoma Lottery.
