Mega Millions® Ticket Winning $40,000 Prize Purchased In Wapello County

David Cylkowski Claims Prize from Oct. 22 Mega Millions® Drawing

DES MOINES, Iowa - A Wixom, Mich. man was working in Eddyville when he decided to buy a Mega Millions® ticket and ended up winning a $40,000 prize from the Oct. 22 drawing.

David Cylkowski claimed his prize Tuesday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. He purchased his winning ticket at Eddyville Amoco, 601 S. Eighth St. in Eddyville.

The winning numbers in the $101 million Mega Millions drawing on Oct. 22 were: 2-7-18-32-53 and Mega Ball 18. The Megaplier® number that night was 4. Cylkowski's ticket matched the four white balls and the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize. Because he added the Megaplier option to his ticket, Cylkowski multiplied his $10,000 win by four to claim a $40,000 prize.
