DES MOINES, Iowa – A Mason City man planned to stop for some lunch when he decided to pick up an “Aces High” instant-scratch ticket and ended up winning a top prize of $50,000.

Randall Petersen, 43, said he was traveling for work when he decided to purchase the ticket at Kum & Go, 2905 Fourth Ave. in Clear Lake.

“I saw that I had won so I called my boss and told him that I’d have to take the afternoon off,” Petersen said as he claimed his prize March 14 at the Iowa Lottery’s regional office in Mason City.

After deciding to claim his prize right after he scratched it, Petersen realized he’d better call his wife, Lynn, to tell her the good news, too.

“I said, ‘I won $50,000. I’m not sure the ticket is right so I’m going to come home and show you,’” Petersen said. “At first she didn’t believe me.”

Petersen said Aces High is one of his favorite tickets to play, but he never dreamed he’d win a top prize. He said he plans to use some of his winnings to pay bills.

Aces High is a $5 scratch game. Players win a prize by matching any of “your cards” to any “winning cards” to win the prize shown below that card. If players find an “A” symbol, they win double the prize shown. The overall odds of winning in the game are 1 in 3.55

Seventeen prizes of $50,000 are still up for grabs in Aces High, as well as 13 prizes of $5,000, 75 prizes of $500 and 149 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.

Today, lottery proceeds in Iowa have three main purposes: They provide support for veterans, help for a variety of significant projects through the state General Fund, and backing for the Vision Iowa program, which was implemented to create tourism destinations and community attractions in the state and build and repair schools.
