Richard Stence Wins in Feb. 23 Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Dubuque man won a $10,000 prize in the Feb. 23 Powerball drawing.
Richard Stence claimed his prize Tuesday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. He purchased his winning ticket at Corner Stop Convenience, 210 Hwy. 30 W. in Mount Vernon.
The winning numbers in the $154.8 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Saturday were: 29-32-36-39-49 and Powerball 29. The Power Play® multiplier was 3. Stence won a $10,000 prize by matching four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. Had he added the Power Play to his ticket, Stence would have multiplied his $10,000 win by three to win a $30,000 prize.
There was no jackpot winner for the Feb. 23 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.
