CLIVE, IOWA — A Nora Springs man bought a scratch game lottery ticket on a whim and won a $100,000 prize.

“I go in there and buy $10 tickets every now and then and I just switch up what I buy,” Moore said.
Moore claimed his prize Friday at the lottery’s Mason City regional office. He plans to use part of his winnings to pay bills and save the rest.
