Cedar Rapids Man Wins $250,000 Mega Millions® Prize

Dennis Dyrland Claims Prize from Friday Mega Millions Drawing

DES MOINES, Iowa - A Cedar Rapids man won a $250,000 prize in the August 6 Mega Millions drawing.

Dennis Dyrland claimed his prize Monday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. He purchased his winning ticket at Casey's, 780 N. Center Point Rd. in Hiawatha.

The winning numbers in the $53 million Mega Millions drawing on Aug. 6 were: 7-13-30-33-54 and Mega Ball 30. The Megaplier® number that night was 3. Dyrland's ticket matched the first five numbers but missed the Mega Ball to win a $250,000 prize. Had he added the Megaplier option to his ticket, he would have multiplied his $250,000 win to $750,000.
