Ticket Winning $10,000 Prize Purchased In Waterloo

Inigo Assaripallam Claims Prize from March 22 Mega Millions® Drawing

DES MOINES, Iowa - A Toronto, Ontario, Canada man won a $10,000 prize in the March 22 Mega Millions® drawing.

Inigo Assaripallam claimed his prize Wednesday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. He purchased his winning ticket at Hy-Vee, 1422 Flammang Drive in Waterloo.

The winning numbers in the $244 million Mega Millions drawing on March 22 were: 1-14-35-50-53 and Mega Ball 43. The Megaplier® number that night was 4. Assaripallam'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, Assaripallam would have multiplied his $10,000 win by four to claim a $40,000 prize.

There was no jackpot winner in the March 22 Mega Millions drawing. Players can multiply their prizes (except the jackpot) with the Megaplier up to four times. The cost is $1 per play.
