Powerball ticket worth $1 million sold in Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — No one won this weekend’s Powerball jackpot, but a ticket worth $1 million was sold in the Des Moines area.

Lottery officials say the $1 million ticket was sold at a Git-N-Go convenience store in Urbandale, Iowa.

The winning ticket matched the first five numbers in Saturday’s drawing, but didn’t match the Powerball.

Because no one won Saturday’s $330.8 million jackpot, the prize will increase to roughly $400 million for Wednesday’s drawing. That would be the sixth-largest lottery jackpot ever.
