(AP) -

Iowa Lottery officials say a Powerball ticket sold in the state is worth $2 million.

Officials say the ticket was sold at a Casey's convenience store in the western Iowa city of Onawa. It matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball to win a $1 million prize in Wednesday's drawing. The person who bought the ticket also added the Power Play to the purchase, which multiplied the prize to $2 million.

The buyers of tickets sold in California, Florida and Tennessee will share the estimated $1.6 billion jackpot or the $983.5 million cash option.

Lottery officials say people bought more than $12 million in Powerball tickets in Iowa for Wednesday's drawing. The odds of winning the jackpot are about 1 in 292.2 million.
