DES MOINES, Iowa - An Iowa City man won a $10,000 prize in the April 21 Powerball drawing.

Nicolas Williams claimed his prize Friday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. He purchased his winning Powerball ticket at Delimart, 206 E. Benton St. in Iowa City.

The winning numbers on April 21 were 11-34-41-49-55 and Powerball 20. The Power Play® multiplier was two. Williams 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, Williams 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.
