Someone who bought a Powerball ticket at Lund's 66 convenience store at 975 Spruce Hills Drive, Betttendorf, won $40,000 in Wednesday night's drawing, according to ialotteryblog.com/.
Lund's received a message from lottery officials over its ticket machine that someone had won the $40,000, Barb Lund said.
''No one's been in yet to say it's theirs, but we're hoping to find out,'' she said. ''We're just happy someone bought such a big ticket here.''
To win, the ticket holder matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball number, plus had the Power Play option, according to blog information.
