LOTTERY WINNER: Indianola Woman Claims $90K Prize | News
An Indianola woman came home with $90,000 after winning the lottery.
Karon McDowell purchased a ticket for Wednesday’s drawing.
McDowell offered some advice to would be players, “You never buy a Powerball® without getting the Power Play,” she said. “You never get a Hot Lotto ticket without getting the Sizzler! It’s real important.”
McDowell won her prize on the 3X the Sizzle game which was bought at the Hy-Vee on N. Jefferson Way in Indianola.
“We’ve known a couple of people that have won. And I thought, ‘Oh, wouldn’t that be sweet to be one of those winners,’” McDowell said, now knowing how it feels. “It’s awesome!”
Since the lottery’s start in 1985, players have won more than $3 billion in prizes while the lottery has raised more than $1.4 billion for the state programs that benefit all Iowans.
