Ticket Purchased In NW Iowa Wins $1 Million Powerball Prize

It's the 3rd Iowa Ticket In 2 Months To Win At Least $1 Million

CLIVE, Iowa — For the third time in the past two months, someone in Iowa has won a lottery prize of at least $1 million. The latest big win came Monday in the Powerball® game.

Someone who bought a Powerball ticket at a convenience store in Danbury, a community of 320 in Woodbury County, won a $1 million prize in the game's Monday drawing.

The Danbury ticket was one of two across the country that won a $1 million prize in Monday's Powerball drawing, with the other in Wisconsin. A Kentucky ticket won a $2 million prize in the drawing.

Iowa's $1 million-winning ticket was purchased at KCK's Food and Fuel, 503 Iowa Highway 175 in Danbury. The ticket came within one number of having at least a share of Monday's $485 million jackpot.

The Danbury ticket matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball to win a $1 million prize. Monday's winning numbers were: 19-30-36-46-60 and Powerball 25. The Power Play® number was 3. No one matched all six numbers to win the jackpot, so the big prize climbs to an estimated $508 million annuity, $256.3 million lump-sum option, for Wednesday.

KCK's Food and Fuel will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Iowa Lottery for selling the $1 million-winning ticket.

Four lottery prizes of at least $1 million have been claimed so far in 2022 in Iowa. Three prizes at that level, including the Danbury ticket, are currently unclaimed. The other two big unclaimed prizes are in the Powerball and Mega Millions® games. Here are details about them:
