The official results show that Iowa Lottery players won more than 67,000 prizes in last night’s drawing, including six winning tickets that came within one number of having at least a share of the giant jackpot.
Strong sales here in Iowa and across the country pushed last night’s Powerball jackpot to $564.1 million annuity or $381.1 million for the cash option. It was split by three tickets purchased in North Carolina, Texas and Puerto Rico.
Here in our state, a total of 67,320 plays purchased by Iowa Lottery players won prizes ranging from $4 up to $30,000. Four tickets matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball to win a $10,000 prize each. They were purchased at: Hy-Vee Gas, 1025 E. Hickman Road in Waukee; Hy-Vee Gas, 4701 Fleur Drive in Des Moines; Casey’s, 20 Miller Ave. SW in Cedar Rapids; and Casey’s, 323 Iowa Highway 30 W. in Mount Vernon.
Two more tickets also matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball, but also had the Power Play® option added to them, which multiplied their prize to $30,000. They were purchased at: Casey’s, 1018 First Ave. E. in Newton; and Huba Huba, 9 Ninth St. SW in Waukon.
The winning numbers in last night’s Powerball jackpot drawing were: 11-13-25-39-54 and Powerball 19. The Power Play number was 3. The final jackpot amount surged well above the $500 million annuity estimate heading into the drawing. The Powerball jackpot returns to its starting amount of $40 million annuity ($22.8 million cash option) for Saturday’s drawing.
