News broke early Tuesday afternoon that there is a new Powerball prize winner right here in Iowa. This news is causing quite a bit of commotion for New Hampton residents at the moment.


Officials are claiming that a $2 million winning ticket was purchased at a convenience store in New Hampton, Iowa. Over the past twelve months, there have been a whole lot of lottery winners right here in the Midwest.

Earlier this month a Powerball ticket worth more than $315 million was sold in Wisconsin.

One Waterloo woman won $100,000 after playing the lottery. Not even a full week later, yet another woman in Waterloo took home the big cash prize of $30,000. By the end of April, a third Waterloo woman had claimed a $20,000 payout. In total, $150,000 went directly into the pockets of several Cedar Valley residents. Another Waterloo man sweetened up the pot by winning another $100,000 in April.
