Posted: Updated:

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- A Powerball ticket bought at a Cedar Rapids convenience store won a $2 million prize in Saturday night’s drawing.

The Iowa Lottery reports that the ticket was purchased at Hawkeye Convenience Store, 2330 Wiley Blvd. SW. It matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball to win a $1 million prize, but the person who bought the ticket also added the Power Play option to the purchase, which multiplied the prize to $2 million, according to a press release.

The Powerball jackpot was $335.5 million, and it went unclaimed

Saturday’s winning numbers were: 11-17-40-50-62 and Powerball 26. The Power Play number was 2.

"This is the second ticket in Iowa to win a $2 million prize this year, while two others have won prizes of $1 million," the release states. "One of those $1 million prizes, won with a ticket purchased in West Des Moines for the Mega Millions drawing on May 20, remains unclaimed."
