St. Louis Man Makes Mortgage Disappear with $200,000 Powerball Prize

Story Photo Making a monthly home mortgage payment is about to be a memory for one St. Louis (63116*) man.  Louis Triola matched all five white-ball numbers in the Sept. 18 Powerball drawing – a feat that earned him a $200,000 prize.  The 54-year-old plans to pay off his home with the windfall.

Triola bought his winning Quick Pick Powerball ticket at Dirt Cheap Cigarettes and Beer, 2060 Hampton Ave., in St. Louis.  The store received a bonus of $2,000 for selling the winning ticket.  The winning numbers from the Sept. 18 drawing were:  1, 18, 37, 39 and 44. 

Powerball is a multi-lottery Numbers Game with jackpots that start at $20 million.  There are nine different ways to win cash prizes playing Powerball, and for an extra dollar at the time of purchase, players can add Power Play to multiply all prizes other than the jackpot by a Power Play number selected during the drawing.  Players who select Power Play and win the second prize of $200,000 will automatically win $1 million, regardless of the Power Play number drawn.
