A ticket with a big prize — but not the jackpot — was sold in Iowa for the $338.3-million Powerball drawing Saturday. The big jackpot winner is not from Iowa — unless it was an Iowan who bought a ticket in New Jersey — as that’s where Powerball officials say one winning ticket for Saturday’s drawing was purchased.
One ticket sold at a convenience store in Oskaloosa came very close to winning the big prize. That ticket matched the first five numbers in the drawing, but missed the Powerball.
The person who bought the ticket also bought the Power Play option, which makes that ticket worth two-million dollars. A spokesperson at the Kum and Go store where the ticket was purchased in Oskaloosa says they haven’t heard from anyone yet who may be the winner.
