Duncan resident wins $50K in the Powerball

DUNCAN, OK (KSWO)- While only one person hit the big jackpot after Wednesday night's drawing, three Oklahomans scored some money. In fact, one Duncan resident won $50,000!

Duncan's Chisholm Corner at 20th and Beech proudly displays the words "$50,000 Powerball winner sold here." This is the first time Chisholm Corner has sold a lotto ticket that brought in that much money.

We spoke with the Food and Fountain Service Manager about the news earlier today. She says they were nothing but excited when the call came in.

When we stopped by this afternoon, the lucky winner hadn't come in yet to claim their prize. The manager says they were obviously shocked -- and hope this will boost some business and encourage others in the area to come and buy lottery tickets from them. 

The Oklahoma Lottery reported 3 Oklahomans won $50,000 each for their Powerball tickets.

Lottery players across the U.S. scooped up $2 Powerball tickets in hopes of beating the odds and winning a massive $758.7 million jackpot. The Massachusetts State Lottery announced that the single winning ticket was sold at the Pride Station & Store location in Chicopee.
