David Jones Wins Big Prize in the July 10 Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Fulton, Ill. man was traveling through Clinton when he bought a Powerball ticket for the July 10 drawing and ended up winning a $10,000 prize.
David Jones claimed his prize Monday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. He purchased his winning ticket at North Bridge Self Serve, 119 19th Ave. N. in Clinton.
The winning numbers for the $73.9 million jackpot on July 10 were 20-21-27-28-56 and Powerball 4. The Power Play® multiplier was four. Jones 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, Jones 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.
