A Redfield woman was announced Monday as the winner of largest lottery prize in Iowa.

Lerynne West, 51, said she plans to “purchase a new car, and look forward to a long vacation – or several.”

West was announced as the winner of the Powerball jackpot won with a ticket from Redfield will be introduced during a news conference at 11 a.m. at the Iowa Lottery headquarters in Clive.

One of two tickets that matched the winning numbers drawn for Powerball’s $688 million jackpot on Oct. 27 came from the town of 800 people near Des Moines. The other ticket was sold in New York City. 

The pair matched the numbers 8, 12, 13, 19 and 27, and Powerball 4. The prize will be split between the two: $343.9 million annuity or $198.1 million lump sum.

Casey’s General Store, where the ticket was sold, will receive $10,000 from the Iowa Lottery, said Mary Neubauer, spokesperson for the Iowa Lottery.

Lerynne West, 51, of Redfield went to Casey’s in Redfield to go get some pizza because she was hungry. She didn’t remember her Powerball tickets until Sunday.
