Scott Schultz Wins Big Prize in July 9 Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Muscatine County man won a $10,000 prize in the July 9 Powerball drawing.
Scott Schultz from Nichols claimed his prize July 26 at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. He purchased his winning ticket at Casey's, 1334 Hwy. 22 in Nichols.
The winning numbers in the $36.1 million Powerball jackpot drawing on July 9 were: 1-9-11-23-31 and Powerball 6. The Power Play® multiplier was 3. Schultz won a $10,000 prize by matching four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. Had he added the Power Play to his ticket, Schultz would have multiplied his $10,000 win by three to win a $30,000 prize.
There was no jackpot winner in the July 9 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.
