Who said Friday the 13th is unlucky? Someone who bought a ticket in northwest Iowa ended up winning a $100,000 prize today in a lotto drawing.
It happened in the midday All or Nothing drawing. A ticket purchased at Casey’s, 101 Fifth Ave. SW in Le Mars, matched all 12 numbers to win the game’s top prize of $100,000. The winning numbers in the drawing were: 1-5-7-8-9-14-15-16-17-20-21-23.
The lucky winner or winners can claim the prize at one of the Iowa Lottery’s offices – either at its headquarters in Clive or one of its regional offices in Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Mason City or Storm Lake.
This is the second time in less than a month that Iowa has had a top prize winner in the joint Iowa-Minnesota lotto game. Douglas Whitney of Mount Vernon won All or Nothing’s $100,000 top prize in the Feb. 18 midday drawing by matching all 12 numbers drawn.
Since the game’s debut in January last year, there have been eight $100,000 top prize winners overall, including five in Iowa.
