Roger Bolks Wins Big Prize in the March 3 Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Sioux Center man won a $10,000 prize in the March 3 Powerball drawing.
Roger Bolks claimed his prize Monday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Storm Lake. He bought his winning Powerball ticket at Sioux Per Center, 1212 N. Main in Sioux Center.
The winning numbers on March 3 were 7-9-14-45-49 and Powerball 23. The Power Play® multiplier was four. Bolks 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, Bolks would have multiplied his $10,000 win by four to win a total of $40,000.
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.
