Des Moines Man Wins $1M in Powerball
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A Des Moines man has won $1 million in Powerball, the latest in a string of lottery winners in Iowa.
Fifty-one-year-old Mark Evans claimed his prize from the Sept. 19 drawing on Wednesday at the lottery headquarters. He's one of ten Iowa players to win at least $1 million in lottery games this year.
Evans, who bought his ticket at a Dahls' grocery store, works as an audio-visual coordinator at a real estate services firm, CBRE, in Des Moines. He plans to invest the money and make a few repairs to his truck and may buy a new TV.
A group of workers from Quaker Oats in Cedar Rapids claimed a $241 million Powerball jackpot in June. A Bondurant couple claimed a $202 million jackpot last week.
