CLIVE, Iowa – A Quad-Cities man was just one number away from winning a record-breaking Powerball jackpot last month and ended up winning a $50,000 prize.
Rick Powell of Moline, Ill. matched four white balls and the Powerball in the Jan. 13 drawing to win a $50,000 prize.
The winning numbers in that night’s world-record $1.586 billion jackpot drawing were: 4-8-19-27-34 and Powerball 10. The Power Play number was 2. Three tickets sold in three different states – California, Florida and Tennessee - split the jackpot. Wednesday’s jackpot is an estimated $236 million.
Powell purchased his winning ticket at Kwik Shop, 303 W. Locust in Davenport. He claimed his prize Monday at the lottery’s regional office in Cedar Rapids.
