Quaker Oats Employees Win Second Powerball Prize
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Another group of Quaker Oats employees has struck gold. Iowa Lottery officials said The Quaker 50, as they are calling themselves, claimed a $10,004 prize Wednesday.
Someone bought the ticket for the group at a convenience store in Hiawatha. The group won on more than one play on its ticket, Iowa Lottery officials said, that's why the amount is uneven. Bret Naber of Hiawatha claimed the prize Wednesday.
In June, another group of Oak Oat employees, called the Shipping 20, claimed the largest Powerball prize in Iowa history, $241 million.
The winner of $202.1 million in last Wednesday's drawing hasn't claimed their prize yet, that ticket was purchased in Bondurant. Another winning ticket was purchased the same night in Williamsburg, worth $1 million. That prize has also not been claimed.
The numbers on those tickets are 13, 26, 39, 41, 42, and the Powerball number 10.
