A Des Moines man has won $1 million in Powerball, the latest in a string of lottery winners in Iowa.

Fifty-one-year-old Mark Evans claimed his prize from the September 19th drawing on Wednesday at lottery headquarters. He's one of 10 Iowa players to win at least $1 million in lottery games this year.

Evans, who bought his ticket at a Dahls' grocery store, works as an audio-visual coordinator at a real estate services firm, CBRE, in Des Moines. He plans to invest the money and make a few repairs to his truck and may buy a new TV.

A group of workers from Quaker Oats in Cedar Rapids claimed a $241 million Powerball jackpot in June. A Bondurant couple claimed a $202 million jackpot last week.
