Justin Titus Wins Top Prize Playing “Merry Crossword” Holiday Scratch Game
DES MOINES, Iowa – A Davenport man won a top prize of $30,000 playing the lottery’s “Merry Crossword” instant-scratch game.
Justin Titus claimed his prize Monday at the Iowa Lottery’s regional office in Cedar Rapids. He purchased his winning ticket at Slagle Foods, 6723 Northwest Blvd. in Davenport.
Merry Crossword is a $3 scratch game. Players win a prize by uncovering at least three complete words in the ticket’s puzzle. If a player uncovers 10 words, he/she wins $30,000. The overall odds of winning in the game are 1 in 3.82.
Four top prizes of $30,000 are still up for grabs in Merry Crossword as well as 10 prizes of $3,000, 138 prizes of $300 and more than 600 prizes of $100.
