St. Louis Man Claims $200,000 Powerball Prize
A St. Louis man almost bought $5 worth of Powerball tickets, but thought better of it. Instead, he spent $1 on a Quick Pick ticket. That was all he needed to win a $200,000 prize in the Oct. 5 Powerball drawing.
Anthony Kaiser, 30, bought the winning ticket at QuikTrip, 3410 S. Kingshighway Blvd., in St. Louis. He matched all five white-ball numbers to win the second-level prize. The Oct. 5 winning Powerball numbers were: 7, 20, 43, 46 and 54. If he had matched the Powerball number of 17, Kaiser would have won the $58 million jackpot.
QuikTrip received a bonus equal to 1 percent of the prize amount, or $2,000, for selling the winning ticket.
is a multi-lottery Draw Game with jackpots that start at $20 million. For an extra $1 at the time of purchase, players can add the Power Play option and multiply any non-jackpot prizes by a Power Play number selected during the drawing. Players who match five white-ball numbers with Power Play automatically receive $1 million.
