People all across the country have been purchasing Powerball tickets for the chance to win the HUGE jackpot prize. This time around, the payout was $1.75 billion.

On Wednesday, there was in fact a winner of the Powerball jackpot!

A winning ticket was sold in California, but one person in Iowa got pretty darn close. This is the second time in the last year that a California resident took home the prize, according to reports.

The prize money has been building up for thirty-five back-to-back drawings since July. In a statement from the Iowa Lottery's official social media platforms, a ticket that was purchased in the Hawkeye State was one number away from sharing that huge jackpot prize.

Bought in Clarion at a Casey's, the ticket matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball. While this ticket owner will not be bringing home the $1.75 billion, they will still be $50,000 richer.

No winner has come forward yet to claim their prize. We will keep you updated once the news and winner are made public!

Roseanne Barr was set to make a home in Iowa. She and her then-husband Tom Arnold were in the midst of building a mansion in Eldon. It was put on hold when the couple eventually split up. This left a beautiful, unfinished, and kind of spooky mansion behind.
