LOTTERY FEVER: Iowans Hope For Jackpot
Millions of people spent $2 in the hope of becoming a multi-millionaire.
The winning numbers are: 5-25-30-58-59 and the Powerball number is 32.
Whoever matches all six numbers can collect $425-million over 20-years or a lump sum payment of $245-million.
Even with the long odds of winning, the massive jackpot was enough for many people to take a shot.
The Hy-Vee store on Jordan Creek Parkway in West Des Moines has sold the most tickets in the metro in the past week.
Most Powerball buyers had ideas on how they would spend the money and they all said they were feeling lucky, “I’ve bought them for years and it’s time to win!” Gerald Crawford hoped.
Wednesday’s jackpot is the fourth highest in history. If nobody wins it will likely top the record $590-million jackpot for Saturday’s drawing.
