The $2 million prize from a Powerball ticket purchased at an Ada convenience store was claimed late last week by Heritage Trust Co., acting as trustee for Pennies from Heaven Trust I and Pennies from Heaven Trust II, Lottery officials said. The ticket was for the July 31 drawing. The winners successfully matched five of five white balls, which is a $1 million prize. By adding the Power Play option, the prize was doubled to $2 million.
