Posted on 01 October 2013 by KWBG

DES MOINES, Iowa—A Boone woman used the $5 she won on an Iowa Lottery instant-scratch ticket to purchase a ” Super Crossword” ticket and ended up winning a top prize of $50,000.  44-year old Connie Carter said she thought she only won $500 at first.  “Then I started counting (the words),” she said.  “Found out it was 10!”

Carter said she went to a retailer to verify her winning ticket and when the clerk told her she won $50,000, she “started shaking.”

Carter claimed the 23rd of 34 top prizes of $50,000 available in the lottery’s Super Crossword scratch game.  She claimed her prize Friday at the lottery’s headquarters in Des Moines.

Carer purchased her winning ticket at Kum & Go, 1704 South Story Street in Boone.  Carter and her husband Jerry said the lottery winning will be used to help purchase a house in Boone.
