Dyersville Woman Wins $150,000 Powerball Prize

A Dyersville woman has won a $150,000 Powerball prize.

Ann Mescher matched four of five white balls and the Powerball in the July 12 drawing. Her initial $50,000 prize was tripled because she opted for the $1 Power Play® option, which multiples non-jackpot prize amounts by up to 10 times.

Mescher purchased her winning ticket at Casey’s, 1402 Ninth St. SE in Dyersville, and claimed her prize Thursday at the lottery’s Cedar Rapids regional office.

The winning numbers in the July 12 drawing were 23-35-45-66-67 and Powerball 20. The Power Play was 3.

Players in $2 Powerball choose their first five numbers from a pool of 69, and another number – called the Powerball – from a separate pool of 26. The Power Play option is available for an extra $1 per play.

Since getting its start in April 1992 in 15 states with jackpots that started at a guaranteed $2 million, Powerball has grown into one of the world’s biggest and most recognizable lottery games. Today Powerball is played by 48 lotteries across the country with drawings at 9:59 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
