DES MOINES, Iowa - A Des Moines woman won a $40,000 prize in Saturday's Powerball drawing.

Michelle Peterson claimed her prize Monday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. She purchased her winning ticket at Dahl's, 5440 86th St. N.W. in Johnston.

The winning numbers in the $110 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Saturday were 9-31-38-54-56 and Powerball 20. Peterson won a $10,000 prize by matching four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. Because she added the Power Play® to her ticket, Peterson multiplied her win to $40,000.

There was no jackpot prize winner in the Saturday's drawing. Saturday's estimated jackpot is $139 million.

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.

Winning numbers may be checked at the lottery website at or through the winning numbers' hot line at (515) 323-4633. Winning numbers may also be checked with lottery retail outlets or by calling the lottery at (515) 725-7900 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
