The Iowa Lottery reported on Thursday that the winning ticket for the $202.1 million jackpot was sold in Iowa, the same state that sold the $241 million ticket in June.
According to the Lottery, the winning ticket matched the number drawn on Wednesday night, 13, 26, 39, 41, 42 and the Powerball number 10. A press release said the exact location the ticket was purchased as well as the winner have not yet been announced.
In addition, another winning ticket which matched the first five numbers but not the Powerball number was also purchased in Iowa and is worth $1 million. Four other tickets in the U.S. also matched the five numbers for the $1 million prize.
In June, a group of employees in Cedar Rapids employed by Quaker Oats shared a jackpot of $241 million divided 20 ways. The winners, nicknamed the “Shipping 20,” were the biggest lottery prize winners in the state’s history.
The winners from this drawing mark the ninth and 10th winning tickets sold in Iowa, according to the Des Moines Register.
