Des Moines Woman Wins $10,000 Lottery Prize

Katie Liekweg Wins $10,000 Prize in Dec. 21 Powerball® Drawing

DES MOINES, Iowa - A Des Moines woman won a $10,000 prize in the Dec. 21 Powerball drawing.

Katie Liekweg claimed her prize Friday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. She purchased her ticket at Casey's, 6630 Mills Civic Parkway in West Des Moines.

The winning numbers in the $105.6 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Dec. 21 were: 10-13-15-31-54 and Powerball 18. The Power Play® multiplier was 5. Liekweg 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, Liekweg would have multiplied her $10,000 win by five to win a $50,000 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.

Players who choose the Power Play and match five white balls (regularly a $200,000 prize) win an instant $1 million.
