One $2 million Powerball® Prize Claimed, While Another Awaits Winner

CLIVE, Iowa — A Pottawattamie County man has claimed a $2 million Powerball prize, while a second multimillion-dollar prize is still up for grabs.

Danny Buckelew of Treynor matched all five white balls in the Powerball drawing on Oct. 7, 2023. His initial $1 million prize was doubled because he opted for the Power Play option at the time of purchase, which multiplies the prize at the Match 5 level to $2 million.

Buckelew purchased his winning easy-pick ticket at Casey's, 403 Stephans St. in Tiffin, and claimed his prize Wednesday at lottery headquarters in Clive. Casey's received a $2,000 bonus from the Iowa Lottery for selling the $2 million-winning ticket at one of its stores.

The winning numbers in the Oct. 7 drawing were 47-54-57-60-65 and Powerball 19. The Power Play number was 3.

Meanwhile, another $2 million Powerball prize remains unclaimed nearly two months after it was won. The lucky ticket matched all five white balls in the drawing on Nov. 25, 2023, and was purchased at Clinton Liquor, 1641 S. Bluff Blvd. in Clinton.

The winning numbers in that drawing were 27-33-63-66-68 and Powerball 9. The Power Play number was 2.

The winner or winners of this $2 million prize will have until the close of business on May 23, 2024, to claim it at Iowa Lottery headquarters in Clive.

Since getting its start in April 1992 in 15 states with jackpots that started at a guaranteed $2 million, Powerball has grown into one of the world's biggest and most recognizable lottery games. Today Powerball is played by 48 lotteries with drawings at 9:59 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
