A decision to add a special feature to a Powerball ticket paid off for a St. Louis (63113)* woman earlier this month. Catherine Davis, 54, would’ve won $10,000 for matching four white-ball numbers and the Powerball on Sept. 4. However, she spent an extra $1 to add Power Play to her ticket, which ballooned her payday into a $40,000 prize.
Davis used Quick Pick on the ticket she bought at QuikTrip, 9099 Natural Bridge Road, in St. Louis. The winning numbers were: 2, 9, 26, 45, 47 and the Powerball was 11.
