DES MOINES, Iowa - A Johnston man won a $10,000 prize in the Feb. 24 Mega Millions drawing.

Scott Oeltjenbruns claimed his prize Feb. 24 at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. He purchased his winning ticket at Kum & Go, 2110 Guthrie Ave. in Des Moines.

The winning numbers in the $83 million Mega Millions drawing on Feb. 24 were 1-16-18-25-27 and Mega Ball 3. The Megaplier® number that night was 4. Oeltjenbruns' ticket matched the four white balls and the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize. Had he added the Megaplier option to his ticket, Oeltjenbruns would have multiplied his $10,000 win by four to claim a $40,000 prize.

There was no jackpot winner in the Feb. 24 Mega Millions drawing.

Players can multiply their prizes (except the jackpot) with the Megaplier up to four times. The cost is $1 per play.
