Cedar Falls Man Wins $10,000 Lottery Prize

Michael O'Hara Wins $10,000 Prize in Feb. 1 Powerball® Drawing

DES MOINES, Iowa - A Cedar Falls man won a $10,000 prize in the Feb. 1 Powerball drawing.

Michael O'Hara claimed his prize June 29 at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. He purchased his winning ticket at Super Mart, 701 S. Frederick Ave. in Oelwein.

The winning numbers in the $173.5 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Feb. 1 were 8-13-17-34-59 and Powerball 35. O'Hara 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, O’Hara would have multiplied his win to $40,000.

There was no jackpot prize winner in the Feb. 1 drawing.

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.
