Rhonda Klosterboer Wins in Jan. 26 Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Williamsburg woman won a $30,000 prize in the Jan. 26 Powerball drawing.
Rhonda Klosterboer claimed her prize Monday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. She purchased her winning ticket at Ampride, 2205 Hwy. 6 Trail in Marengo, the same store Robert Ehrenberger from Ladora bought his Mega Millions ticket at winning him a $250,000 prize in March 2010.
The winning numbers in the $20 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Jan. 26 were: 4-5-36-47-58 and Powerball 6. The Power Play® multiplier was 3. Klosterboer won a $10,000 prize by matching four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. Because she added the Power Play to her ticket, Klosterboer multiplied her $10,000 win by three to win a $30,000 prize.
There was no jackpot winner for the Jan. 26 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.
