(Pierre) - Bob Marshall of Mission won $25,000 in last night’s Powerball drawing. Marshall matched four of the five white numbers and the red Powerball number. Normally a $5,000 prize, the prize increased to $25,000 because he bought a Power Play ticket.
For an extra $1 per play, the Power Play multiplies any Powerball non-jackpot prize up to five times. During a Powerball drawing, a separate Power Play number from 2 to 5 is drawn as the prize multiplier.
Marshall bought his winning "quick pick" ticket at the Gus Stop in White River. He claimed his prize at the Pierre Lottery office this afternoon. The store will receive a $2,500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
This is the second time a $25,000 Powerball Power Play ticket was sold in South Dakota. Glenna Poulisse of Iroquois won $25,000 in October, 2003.
No one hit the Powerball jackpot last night, and the estimated jackpot for the next drawing on Saturday night is $37 million.
Two $5,000 winning Powerball tickets are still unclaimed, and one of them expires tomorrow.
The ticket sold in Pierre for the July 19, 2003 drawing must be claimed no later than tomorrow, January 16. The ticket sold in Sturgis for the July 30, 2003 must be claimed no later than January 26.
Lotto tickets are valid for 180 days from the drawing date for which they were purchased. Unclaimed prizes are returned to players through prize pools of subsequent games.
