Candice McConnell Wins Big Prize In Feb. 26 Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Mediapolis woman won a $10,000 prize in the Feb. 26 Powerball® drawing.
Candice McConnell claimed her prize Friday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. She purchased her winning ticket at Fast Break, 109 Wapello St. S.E. in Mediapolis.
The winning numbers in the $182.1 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Feb. 26 were: 4-13-17-21-45 and Powerball 10. The Power Play® multiplier was 5. McConnell 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, McConnell would have multiplied her $10,000 win by five to win a $50,000 prize.
There was one jackpot winner from Florida in the Feb. 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.
