DES MOINES, Iowa - A Grundy Center man won a $10,000 prize in the Sept. 25 Powerball drawing.

John Gethman claimed his prize Wednesday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. He purchased his winning ticket at Casey's, 1807 Edgington Ave. in Eldora.

The winning numbers in the Sept. 25 $25 million jackpot drawing were 8-16-27-35-42 and Powerball 30. The Power Play® multiplier was 2. Gethman won a $10,000 prize by matching four of five white balls and the Powerball. Had he added the Power Play to his ticket, he would have multiplied his $10,000 win by two to win a $20,000 prize. There was no jackpot winner for the Sept. 25 drawing.

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.
