St. Louis Man Claims $200,000 Powerball Prize
A St. Louis man has come forward to claim a $200,000 Powerball prize from the March 27 drawing. David Finnegan, 52, purchased the winning ticket at 7-Eleven, 2807 Sulphur Ave., in St. Louis. His Quick Pick ticket matched all five white-ball numbers to win the second-level prize in Powerball of $200,000. The winning numbers for the March 27 drawing were: 7, 21, 32, 44, and 52. Had Finnegan matched the Powerball number – the number drawn was ten and his Powerball number was five - he would have won the jackpot of $60 million. That would have ended a jackpot run eventually won by a Marshall man – the $258.5 million jackpot won by Chris Shaw on April 23.
is a multi-lottery Numbers Game with jackpots that start at $20 million. There are nine ways to win playing Powerball, and the game features a Power Play option that multiplies all winnings other than the jackpot by a Power Play number from two to five. If a player wins the second-level prize and selects Power Play for an extra dollar at the time of purchase, the prize is automatically bumped to $1 million.
Between now and May 29, the number 10 has been added to the Power Play matrix, giving players a chance to win 10 times the prize amount. Learn more about the Powerball Power Play 10X promotion here
