Northwood man wins $50,000 lottery prize

DES MOINES, Iowa – A Northwood man was on his way to work when he decided to stop for a “MONOPOLYTM” scratch ticket and ended up winning a top prize of $50,000.

Jeremy Butler, 25, was on his way to work at a meat packing plant when he decided to stop. He was surprised to discover what he’d won.

“I was kind of shocked,” Butler said.

It happened to be the first time Butler had ever played the game.

“It’s one of my favorite tickets now,” he said.

The first person Butler told was his mom.

“When I called, she thought I had gotten a speeding ticket,” Butler said with a laugh.

Butler said he plans to put his winnings into savings.

MONOPOLY is a $5 scratch game. Players win a prize by matching any of “your numbers” to any of the “winning numbers.” If they find the “top hat” symbol they win double the prize shown. There are also three bonus areas where players can win $10, $25 or $50 instantly.
