Williams man claims lottery prize

DES MOINES A Hamilton County man won a $10,000 prize in the March 29 Mega Millions drawing.

Gesley Keane, of Williams, claimed his prize Monday at the Iowa Lottery’s regional office in Mason City. He purchased his winning ticket at Pilot Flying J, 3040 220th St. in Williams.

The winning numbers in the $34 million jackpot drawing on March 29 were: 25-31-36-46-53 and Mega Ball 21. The Megaplier number that night was 4.

Keane matched four white balls and the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize. Had he added the Megaplier to the ticket, he would have multiplied his win to $40,000.

There was no jackpot winner in the March 29 drawing. Tonight’s estimated jackpot is $56 million.

Players can multiply their prizes (except the jackpot) with the Megaplier up to four times. The cost is $1 per play.
