Eldora man wins $30,000 lottery prize

DES MOINES, Iowa – An Eldora man won a top prize of $30,000 playing the lottery’s “Crossword” instant-scratch game.

Ronald Russell claimed his prize Thursday at the Iowa Lottery’s headquarters in Des Moines. He purchased his winning ticket at Kum & Go, 2359 Edgington Ave. in Eldora.

Crossword is a $3 scratch game. Players win a prize by uncovering at least three complete words in the ticket’s puzzle. If a player uncovers 10 words, he/she wins $30,000. The overall odds of winning in the game are 1 in 3.82.

Thirty-eight top prizes of $30,000 are still up for grabs in Crossword, as well as 62 prizes of $3,000, more than 830 prizes of $300 and more than 4,180 prizes of $100.

Players can enter eligible nonwinning scratch tickets online to earn “Points For Prizes™” points. The point value will be revealed to the player on the website upon successful submission of each eligible valid ticket. There is a limit of 30 ticket entries per day. To participate in Points For Prizes™, a player must register for a free account at ialottery.com. Registration is a one-time process. Merchandise that can be ordered by using points will be listed on the website in the Points For Prizes™ online store. Players can choose from items in categories such as apparel, automotive, jewelry, sporting, tools and more.

Since the lottery’s start in 1985, its players have won more than $2.8 billion in prizes while the lottery has raised more than $1.3 billion for the state programs that benefit all Iowans.
