We have so much winner news to talk about today! Over the holiday weekend, someone who bought a ticket in Ankeny won the $100,000 top prize in All or Nothing™. But the expiration date is coming up for two Powerball® prizes in Council Bluffs and Waukon.
The top prize in All or Nothing was won in Sunday’s evening drawing with a ticket that didn’t match any of the numbers that night. The lucky ticket was purchased at Mills Fleet Farm, 4275 S.E. Delaware Ave. in Ankeny.
The winning numbers in that night’s drawing were: 1-3-6-7-9-10-11-12-17-18-21-24. The lucky winner or winners can claim the prize at one of the Iowa Lottery’s offices – either at its headquarters in Clive or one of its regional offices in Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Mason City or Storm Lake.
The two Powerball prizes that are nearing expiration are for $10,000 and $20,000. They’ll expire next month if they’re not claimed in time.
The $10,000 prize was won in Council Bluffs in the Powerball drawing on June 18, 2014, with a ticket purchased at Casey’s, 1030 Veterans Memorial Highway. It came close to winning that night’s $50 million jackpot, matching four of the first five numbers and the Powerball to win a $10,000 prize. The winning numbers were: 6-9-29-52-59 and Powerball 7. The Power Play® number was 3.
The winner or winners of that prize have until the close of business at 4 p.m. on June 18 to claim the prize at a lottery office.
The $20,000 prize was won in Waukon in the Powerball drawing on June 28, 2014, with a ticket purchased at Quillin’s Food Ranch, 9 Ninth St. S.W. That ticket also matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. But whoever bought the ticket also added the Power Play, which multiplied the prize to $20,000. The winning numbers in that night’s $80 million jackpot drawing were: 8-12-34-43-56 and Powerball 9. The Power Play was 2. The winner or winners of that prize have until the close of business at 4 p.m. on June 29 to claim the prize at a lottery office.
In our last fiscal year, nearly $1.4 million in prizes expired without being claimed in Iowa lotto games. The money from unclaimed prizes in Iowa goes into our prize pools for future games and promotions, so it will be used to pay prizes, just not those prizes that have expired
