Details Of Weekend Mega Millions® And Powerball® Results In Iowa

$50,000-Winning Ticket Purchased In Marion

CLIVE, Iowa – The Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots have both ended their historic runs that for the first time saw them simultaneously top the $400 million mark.

Friday's $450 million Mega Millions jackpot was won with a ticket purchased in Florida, while Saturday's $559.7 million Powerball jackpot was won with a ticket purchased in New Hampshire.

In Iowa, players won nearly 42,000 prizes ranging from $4 up to $50,000 in Saturday's Powerball drawing. The $50,000-winning ticket was just one number away from having a share of Saturday's jackpot, matching four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. That lucky ticket was purchased at Hy-Vee, 3600 U.S. Highway 151 in Marion.

WINNING NUMBERS IN BOTH GAMES

The winning numbers in Saturday's Powerball jackpot drawing were: 12-29-30-33-61 and Powerball 26. The Power Play® number was 3.

Meantime, the winning numbers in Friday's Mega Millions jackpot drawing were: 28-30-39-59-70 and Mega Ball® 10. The Megaplier® number was 3.

Both jackpots return to their starting amounts of $40 million for the next drawing.

The $50,000-winning ticket can be claimed at any Iowa Lottery office, the closest of which to the store where the ticket was purchased is in Cedar Rapids.

PLEASE PLAY RESPONSIBLY

With the jackpots garnering such attention, the Iowa Lottery continues to urge the public to play responsibly. "You'sve seen us say this many times, and we really mean it," said Iowa Lottery CEO Terry Rich. "It only takes one ticket to win. Have fun playing, but stay within your means and don't get in over your head. The fun of our games is that you can do a lot of dreaming for just a few dollars."
