Marion Woman Wins $10,000 Lottery Prize

Jean Grimm wins in Dec. 22 Powerball® Drawing

DES MOINES, Iowa - A Marion woman won a $10,000 prize in the Dec. 22 Powerball® drawing.

Jean Grimm claimed her prize Thursday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. She purchased her winning ticket at Kum & Go, 3350 Seventh Ave. in Marion.

The winning numbers in the $36.2 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Dec. 22 were 11-33-44-46-47 and Powerball 12. The Power Play® multiplier was 2. Grimm won a $10,000 prize by matching four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. Had she added the Power Play to her ticket, Grimm would have multiplied her $10,000 win by two to win a $20,000 prize.

There was no jackpot winner for the Dec. 22 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.
