Algona Man Wins $10,000 Lottery Prize

Donald Christensen Wins $10,000 Prize in Jan. 14 Powerball® Drawing

DES MOINES, Iowa - An Algona man won a $10,000 prize in the Jan. 14 Powerball drawing.

Donald Christensen claimed his prize Jan. 18 at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Mason City. He purchased his winning ticket at Hy-Vee, 1500 Hwy. 169 N. in Algona.

The winning numbers in the Jan. 14 $65.9 million Powerball jackpot drawing were: 10-30-36-38-41 and Powerball 1. The Power Play multiplier was 5. Christensen 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, Christensen would have multiplied his $10,000 win by five to win a $50,000 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.
