Lynda Wiebers Wins Big Prize in April 2 Powerball Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Crawford County woman won a $10,000 prize in the April 2 Powerball® drawing.
Lynda Wiebers from Charter Oak claimed her prize Thursday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Storm Lake. She purchased her winning ticket at Sparky's One Stop, Hwy. 71 & 175 in Lake View.
The winning numbers in the $185.2 million Powerball jackpot drawing on April 2 were: 6-22-34-43-45 and Powerball 23. The Power Play® multiplier was 2. Wiebers 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, Wiebers would have multiplied her $10,000 win by two to win a $20,000 prize.
There was no jackpot winner in the April 2 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.
