Michal Haulk Wins Big Prize in Saturday's Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Strawberry Point man won a $30,000 prize in Saturday's Powerball drawing.
Michal Haulk claimed his prize Monday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. He purchased his winning ticket at Nading's Service & Sporting, 201 Commercial St. in Strawberry Point.
The winning numbers in the $121 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Saturday were: 2-8-40-49-50 and Powerball 36. The Power Play® multiplier was 3. Haulk won a $10,000 prize by matching four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. Because he added the Power Play to his ticket, Haulk multiplied his $10,000 win by three to win a $30,000 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.
