A Waterloo man was just one number away from winning a big Powerball jackpot last month and ended up winning a $50,000 prize.

Kevin McConnell matched four white balls and the Powerball in the March 18 drawing to win a $50,000 prize.

The winning numbers in that night’s $139.8 million jackpot drawing were: 13-25-44-54-67 and Powerball 5. The Power Play® number was 3. Wednesday’s jackpot is $40 million.

McConnell bought his winning ticket at Kwik Star, 1636 W. Fourth St. in Waterloo, and claimed his prize Friday at the lottery’s headquarters in Clive.
