Mary Bell Wins $10,000 Prize in Saturday's Powerball® Drawing
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Vinton woman won a $10,000 prize in Saturday's Powerball drawing.
Mary Bell claimed her prize Wednesday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. She purchased her winning ticket at John's Qwik Stop, 814 C Ave. in Vinton.
The winning numbers in the $35.4 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Saturday were: 4-35-36-51-56 and Powerball 8. The Power Play® multiplier was 5. Bell 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, Bell would have multiplied her $10,000 win by five to win a $50,000 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.
