BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) -- An Illinois woman has claimed the $2 million she won in the Iowa Lottery Powerball game.

The Iowa Lottery says 49-year-old Lisa Hays turned in her winning ticket Monday at lottery headquarters in Clive.

Hays, who lives in Monmouth, Illinois, says she bought the ticket while shopping at the Hy-Vee store on Agency Street in Burlington.

Hays told lottery officials that she intends to buy a house and a new car with her winnings and set some aside for retirement.
