« That $1 Million Prize Expired Without Being Claimed. So Now What? | Main | DEFINITELY Some Beginner’s Luck! »

Hi, Jeff. Thank you for sharing your idea. In the case of the $1 million prize that will be available in this promotion the odds are entirely dependent upon how many tickets end up being entered into the promotion. So, your odds of winning $1 million could actually be really good in this promo. We'll have to wait and see!

Hi, Peg. Yes, any Powerball ticket purchased in Iowa during the three-week promotion entry period from May 29 through June 18 will be eligible for entry into the promotion. Anyone who purchases a ticket in Iowa can then enter it into the promotion. Many Iowa Lottery players are residents of our state, but folks from other areas are welcome to buy tickets here as well.

I can't believe people buy Lotto tickets and don't check them to see if they have won anything??? Handing over cash to purchase Lotto tickets is not the fun part, checking your ticket after the draw to see if you have won anything is the fun part. And if the ticket was lost? shame on that person for not treating that ticket like a million dollar winner and signing the back of it and keeping it in a safe place. Like the lottery says "You can't win if you don't play" and the flip side of that fraze is "Why buy a ticket if you're not going to play it?" O well, Thank You to whoever blew their million dollar win, all the rest of us serious Lotto players welcome another chance at a million bucks!

So any ticket "purchased" in Iowa is eligible for this prize? Does that also include people from bordering states (Minnesota, Missouri etc.) coming into Iowa and purchasing tickets?

I think u should make more winners,like maybe 10 100,000.00 winners,spread the joy around a little more since odds of winning are high to begin with..
