Frances Goetz Wins Big Prize in the April 14 Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Tama County woman won a $30,000 prize in the April 14 Powerball drawing.
Frances Goetz of Garwin claimed her prize Friday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. She bought her winning Powerball ticket at Hy-Vee, 802 S. Center St. in Marshalltown.
The winning numbers on April 14 were 6-14-32-38-52 and Powerball 20. The Power Play® multiplier was three. Goetz matched four of the first five numbers drawn and the Powerball to win a $10,000 prize. Because she added the Power Play to her ticket, Goetz multiplied her $10,000 win by three to win a total of $30,000.
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.
