Two top executives at the Iowa Lottery are out of a job.
The vice president of operations and the lottery’s general council were both let go last Thursday. Both had worked at the lottery since 2010 and both were paid nearly $110,000 a year.
The lottery isn’t saying why the two were let go. They do say new people will be hired to fill the positions.
In addition to employees, the lottery is also looking for a pair of Powerball winners.
A ticket worth $1-million was purchased at a Kum-N-Go store in Tipton back in November. Then in January a ticket worth $10, 000 was sold at the Family Foods store in Tipton.
Both remain unclaimed.
The lottery is holding a news conference this Friday with the hopes of finding the lucky winners.
