Lottery officials say for the second-straight week a person who bought a Powerball ticket in Iowa can claim a million dollar prize.
Last week an 84-year-old man claimed a million dollar Powerball prize on a ticket he bought at a West Des Moines supermarket. Now, for this past Saturday, a ticket sold at a Casey’s convenience store in Des Moines matched the first five numbers in the Powerball drawing.
The person who bought the ticket spent an extra dollar on the so-called “Power Play” option, ensuring they’d win not just 200-thousand dollars for matching the five numbers, but they’d win a million.
This is the fourth time this year that a Powerball ticket sold in Iowa has been worth $1 million.
