Altoona Man Wins $10,000 Lottery Prize

Milorad Lakic Wins $10,000 Prize in Wednesday's Powerball® Drawing

DES MOINES, Iowa - An Altoona man won a $10,000 prize in Wednesday's Powerball drawing.

Milorad Lakic claimed his prize Friday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. He purchased his winning ticket at Hy-Vee, 108 Eighth St. S.W. in Altoona.

The winning numbers in Wednesday's $54.4 million Powerball jackpot drawing were: 5-19-29-45-47 and Powerball 25. The Power Play® multiplier was 2. Lakic 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, Lakic would have multiplied his $10,000 win by two to win a $20,000 prize.

Players can increase their prizes with the Power Play (except the jackpot). The cost is $1 per play. Players who chose the Power Play prior to Jan. 15 and matched four white balls and the Powerball won a $10,000 prize multiplied by the number that was chosen for the Power Play. In the new $2 Powerball game, players who choose the Power Play and match four white balls and the Powerball win a $40,000 prize.
