A Liberty woman is $200,003 richer after claiming her prize from the Aug. 1 Powerball drawing.  Margaret Cochran, 47, purchased the winning ticket at QuikTrip, 655 S. 291 Highway in Liberty.  She used Quick Pick to select the winning numbers which were:  5,37, 39, 46 and 53.  In addition to Cochran’s winnings, QuikTrip, received a check equal to 1 percent of the prize amount - or $2,000 - for selling the winning ticket.

Powerball is a multi-state game that features jackpots starting at $20 million.  Cochran’s ticket was

the 142nd second-level winning Powerball ticket in Missouri since the game redesign in August 2005.  To view a list of unclaimed Powerball prizes, visit
