A Powerball ticket worth $2 million was sold at a convenience store in Decorah, Iowa.

The winning ticket was for the Powerball drawing that happened Saturday, June 22, 2013.

The ticket matched the five winning numbers of 13, 19, 23, 33 and 57 but did not match the Powerball number of 28.  The purchaser played the Power Play option which doubled the ticket’s $1 million prize to $2 million.

The ticket was reportedly sold at a Casey’s General Store on College Drive in Decorah.  The retailer gets $2,000 for selling the winning ticket.

Decorah Newspapers reports the winner is an 80-year-old man who got the ticket as a Father’s Day gift from his daughter.

The Iowa ticket was one of three tickets sold across the country that matched five numbers but did not match the Powerball.

There was one jackpot-winning ticket sold in Pennsylvania; that ticket was worth more an estimated $131.5 million.
