After buying a lottery ticket on a whim, a northern Iowa man has won a $100,000 prize.
The Iowa Lottery says 34-year-old Anthony Moore of Nora Springs won the second top prize in “Hit It Big!”—a $10 scratch game that features 10 top prizes of $100,000. He bought his winning ticket at Casey’s in Nora Springs.
Moore said “I go in there and buy $10 tickets every now and then and I just switch up what I buy.”
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.
