Grain Valley Woman Claims $200,000 Powerball Prize
A Grain Valley woman is enjoying a lucrative start to the New Year. Samantha Noble won $200,000 in the Missouri Powerball drawing on Jan. 7 when she matched all five white-ball numbers. The winning numbers were: 23, 31, 33, 38 and 52.
Noble purchased her winning ticket from Quik Trip, 10232 Warnall Road in Kansas City.
As of Jan. 4, sales of the new and improved Powerball
game began, which raised the starting jackpot from $15 million to $20 million. Additional enhancements to the new game include average jackpots of $141 million, an automatic $1 million prize for matching five white balls and using the Power Play feature and better overall chances to win.
