DES MOINES, Iowa - A West Des Moines man won a $10,000 prize in the Oct. 1 Powerball drawing.

Dave Bray claimed his prize Thursday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. He purchased his ticket at Casey's, 1850 22nd St. in West Des Moines.

The winning numbers in the $48.9 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Oct. 1 were: 1-12-23-27-43 and Powerball 31. The Power Play® multiplier was 3. Bray 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, Bray would have multiplied his $10,000 win by three to win a $30,000 prize.

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.
