DES MOINES, Iowa - A Cedar Rapids man won a $10,000 prize in Tuesday's Mega Millions® drawing.

Frederick Gorsh claimed his prize Thursday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. He purchased his winning ticket at Hawkeye Convenience Store, 4830 Johnson Ave. N.W. in Cedar Rapids.

The winning numbers in the $20 million Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday were: 1-4-11-16-45 and Mega Ball 37. The Megaplier® number that night was 4. Gorsh’s ticket matched the four white balls and the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize. Had he added the Megaplier option to his ticket, Gorsh would have multiplied his $10,000 win by four to claim a $40,000 prize.

There was no winner in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing.

Players can multiply their prizes (except the jackpot) with the Megaplier up to four times. The cost is $1 per play.
