(Guthrie Center) Iowa Lottery Officials say somebody who spent $2 on a Power ball ticket at a Casey’s convenience store in Guthrie Center has won a $1 million prize.
According to a press release, the player matched the first five numbers in Saturday’s Power Ball drawing but missed the power ball. Nobody won the $50 million jackpot.
A clerk at the Casey’s at 100 North fifth Street told lottery headquarters that nobody had heard from the lottery winner.
In January, the cost to buy a Power Ball ticket went from $1.00 to $2.00 and the prize for matching the first five numbers also went up to $1 million, from $200,000.
Saturday’s winning numbers were 23, 28, 50, 56, 59 and Power ball 5.
