St. Louis Man Claims $200,000 Powerball Prize

Story Photo 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.   
   
Powerball 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.
