DES MOINES, Iowa - An Osceola County woman won a $10,000 prize in the Jan. 28 Mega Millions drawing.

Jeri Lemker from Harris claimed her prize Thursday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Storm Lake. She purchased her winning ticket at Main Stay Market, 865 Main St. in Ocheyedan.

The winning numbers in the $77 million Mega Millions drawing on Jan. 28 were: 6-14-33-48-49-50 and Mega Ball 18. The Megaplier® number that night was 4. Lemker’s ticket matched the four white balls and the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize. Had she added the Megaplier option to her ticket, Lemker would have multiplied her $10,000 win by four to claim a $40,000 prize.

There was no winner in the Jan. 28 Mega Millions drawing.

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