Omaha Woman Wins $40,000 Playing Powerball Power Play®

Cheryl Kroupa June 4, 2013 – Cheryl Kroupa of Omaha recently won $40,000 playing Nebraska Powerball with Power Play.

Kroupa purchased her winning Powerball ticket at No Frills Supermarket, 3026 South 24th Street in Omaha. The quick pick ticket contained one play with four of the five winning white ball numbers (7, 12, 26, 36, 40) and the Powerball number (17) for $10,000.

Because Kroupa added the $1 Power Play option to her purchase, her prize was increased from $10,000 to $40,000. She plans to make some home improvements using her winnings.

The odds of winning $10,000 playing Powerball are 1 in 648,976. Adding the $1 Power Play option, which does not affect the odds of winning, gives players the chance to play for enhanced prizes from $12 to $2 million. The overall odds of winning any prize are 1 in 31.8.
