CLIVE, Iowa (KCAU) – Someone who bought a Powerball® ticket in Woodbury County won a $500,000 prize in Saturday’s drawing.
The $500,000-winning ticket was purchased at the Mike’s Mini Mart, 100 Iowa Highway 75 S. in Sergeant Bluff. The ticket came within one number of having at least a share of Saturday’s $81.3 million jackpot.
The ticket matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball to initially win a $50,000 prize. But whoever bought the ticket also added the Power Play® option to the purchase, which multiplied the prize to $500,000.
Saturday’s winning numbers were: 4-8-22-32-58 and Powerball 4. The Power Play number was 10. No one matched all six numbers to win the jackpot, so the big prize climbs to an estimated $90 million annuity ($64.2 million lump-sum option) for Wednesday.
The Sergeant Bluff ticket was one of nine across the country to win a $500,000 prize in Saturday’s drawing.
Mike’s Mini Mart will receive a $500 bonus from the Iowa Lottery for selling the $500,000-winning ticket.
Prizes of $500,000 must be claimed at Iowa Lottery headquarters in Clive. The lottery’s offices are open Monday through Friday, and currently offer prize claims by appointment.
