Lottery Says $1 Million Prize Awaits Ticket Buyer


By Rachel Begle

URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) - Iowa Lottery officials say someone who bought a Powerball ticket in suburban Des Moines has won $1 million.

The lottery said in a news release Sunday night that the ticket matched five of the six Powerball numbers drawn Saturday night: 8, 11, 21, 44 and 49. The ticket didn't match the Powerball number of 22, so the buyer didn't win the $80 million Powerball prize.

The ticket was sold at a Hy-Vee store on Douglas Avenue in Urbandale.

The lottery says it's the sixth $1 million-winning ticket sold since the $2 Powerball began in January.
