CLIVE, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa City man has claimed the $2 million Powerball prize he won during a drawing in July.

Iowa Lottery officials say Jeff Wolf turned in his winning ticket Thursday morning at lottery headquarters in Clive. He’d bought the ticket at a Hawkeye convenience store in Cedar Rapids. The ticket matched five of the numbers drawn July 16 but missed the Powerball number. Because Wolf also bought the Power Play option, the $1 million prize was multiplied to $2 million.

He told lottery officials that he knew shortly after the drawing that he’d won, but he waited to claim the money while working through estate issues following the death of his parents.
