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

Karan Scovill-Hammer claimed her prize Tuesday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. She purchased her winning ticket at Casey's, 3104 First Ave. E. in Newton.

The winning numbers in the $183.1 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Saturday were 11-16-33-40-41 and Powerball 34. Scovill-Hammer won a $10,000 prize by matching four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. Since she added the Power Play® to her ticket, Scovill-Hammer multiplied her win to $40,000.

There was no jackpot winner for Saturday's drawing. Tonight's estimated jackpot is $208 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.
