DES MOINES, Iowa - A Spencer man won a $10,000 prize in the March 8 Mega Millions® drawing.

Jeff Engel claimed his prize Friday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Storm Lake. He purchased his winning ticket at Car-Go Express, 1804 Hwy. Blvd. in Spencer.

The winning numbers in the $127 million Mega Millions drawing on March 8 were: 3-17-19-41-55 and Mega Ball 24. The Megaplier® number that night was 4. Engel'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, Engel would have multiplied his $10,000 win by four to claim a $40,000 prize.

There was no jackpot winner in the March 8 Mega Millions drawing.

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