Iowa Powerball Winners Come Forward
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa Lottery officials say a central Iowa couple has won a $202 million Powerball jackpot drawn last month at a suburban Des Moines convenience store.
Mary and Brian Lohse came forward to claim the prize Thursday in Des Moines. She's a 42-year-old medical assistant at a pediatric clinic and he's a 43-year-old attorney with EMC Insurance.
The winning ticket was the only one to match all six numbers in the Sept. 26 Powerball drawing.
The jackpot was the second largest won in Iowa. It ranks 28th among U.S. lottery jackpots
Mary Lohse says she bought the ticket on the day of the drawing at a convenience store-gas station in Bondurant as she was filling up her car.
