Clayton Carroll Wins Big Prize in the February 27 Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Davenport man won a $20,000 prize in the February 27 Powerball drawing.
Clayton Carroll claimed his prize Monday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. He bought his winning Powerball ticket at Casey's, 1691 W. 53rd St. in Davenport.
The winning numbers on Feb. 27 were 18-47-51-53-58 and Powerball 30. The Power Play® multiplier was two. Carroll matched four of the first five numbers drawn and the Powerball to win a $10,000 prize. Because he added the Power Play to his ticket, Carroll multiplied his $10,000 win by two to win a total of $20,000.
Players can increase their prizes with the Power Play (except the jackpot) up to five times. The cost is $1 per play. The Power Play number, 2 through 5, is chosen at the beginning of the drawing indicating the amount prizes (except the jackpot) will be multiplied if that number is drawn.
For players who choose the Power Play and match five white balls (regularly a $200,000 prize), the multiplier will always be 5, so those players would win an instant $1 million.
