Dale Wels Wins Big Prize in Saturday's Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Dubuque man won a $200,000 prize in Saturday's Powerball® drawing.
Dale Wels claimed his prize Wednesday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. He purchased his winning ticket at Hy-Vee, 2935 N.W. Arterial in Dubuque.
The winning numbers in the $129 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Saturday were: 4-10-11-19-33 and Powerball 27. The Power Play® multiplier was 4. Wels won a $200,000 prize by matching the first five numbers but missing the Powerball. Had he added the Power Play to his ticket, Wels would have instantly won a $1 million prize.
There was no jackpot winner in Saturday's 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.
