$1 Million Powerball Ticket Sold in Iowa

CORRECTIONVILLE, Iowa - Leap Day was a lucky day for whomever bought a lottery ticket at a northwest Iowa coffee shop/convenience store.

According to lottery officials, a Powerball ticket worth $1 million was sold at Brew in Correctionville.

The ticket matched all five regular balls but failed to match the Powerball, leaving it one number short of an $80 million jackpot. A Saturday drawing that is also a leap day only happens about once every 28 years, according to lottery officials.

No one matched all six numbers to win the jackpot, so the big prize climbs to an estimated $90 million annuity ($67.9 million lump-sum option) for Wednesday.
