CLIVE, Iowa – A former Iowa woman has hit it big in the Powerball drawing after buying a ticket in Avoca.

The Iowa Lottery says Vicki Dixon of Allen, Texas won $1 million in the August 9th drawing. Dixon, who was in Iowa for her husband Wayne’s 55th high school reunion in Denison, bought the ticket at Wings America Travel Centre in Avoca.

A ceremony was held Monday morning to introduce Dixon as the winner. Her ticket matched the first five numbers of the drawing but did not match the Powerball.
