Iowa lottery officials said a ticket sold at a grocery store has won the state's $241 million Powerball jackpot.
The Associated Press reported the winner of the ticket, the state's biggest winner yet, has yet to claim the prize from Wednesday's drawing.
It is the seventh ticket sold in Iowa to win the Powerball jackpot. The AP wrote the most recent winners walked away with $200.8 million in 2006.
According to Iowa's Waterloo Daily Courier citing SourceMedia Group, "the ticket was sold to a group of workers at Quaker Oats in Cedar Rapids."

According to the CBS News, the ticket was sold at the Hy-Vee Cedar Rapids.
Store director Jamie Franck said "I'm just hoping it was one of those customers that come in every single day or every single week making their purchases just thinking maybe today's the day. And this might be their lucky day that they get to find out that they're a multimillionaire."
