Roger Fiori Wins Big Prize in the February 27 Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Polk County man won a $10,000 prize in the February 27 Powerball drawing.
Roger Fiori from Grimes claimed his prize Monday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. He bought his winning Powerball ticket at Fareway, 351 Gateway Dr. in Grimes.
The winning numbers on Feb. 27 were 18-47-51-53-58 and Powerball 30. The Power Play® multiplier was two. Fiori matched four of the first five numbers drawn and the Powerball to win a $10,000 prize. Had he added the Power Play to his ticket, Fiori would have 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.
