« I Can’t Find That Holiday Scratch Game! | Main | Player Mail: Are Those The Only Prizes In The 'Loaded' Scratch Game? »

January 25, 2017


Hi, Tedd. While you would argue that few people from Des Moines win, we have other commenters to the blog who argue that it is ONLY those people from the Des Moines area who win. It seems to be an urban myth that you believe "no one from here ever wins" no matter where you're from. I think it's because folks won't ever truly be satisfied until THEY'RE the big winner. And I do understand that -- people play the lottery hoping to win a prize, right? The fact is that people all across the state win lottery prizes every day. Thank you for your comment to the blog!

To bad, it seems, that nobody wins this, or large scratch ticket prizes in Des Moines very much. There have been a few but not very many
