DES MOINES, Iowa – A Davenport woman won a top prize of $30,000 playing the lottery’s “Crossword” instant-scratch game.
Ruby Davis claimed her prize Monday at the Iowa Lottery’s regional office in Cedar Rapids. She purchased her winning ticket at Mother Hubbard’s, 7522 N.W. Blvd. in Davenport.
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.
Twenty-nine top prizes of $30,000 are still up for grabs in Crossword, as well as 52 prizes of $3,000, more than 700 prizes of $300 and more than 3,400 prizes of $100.

Since the lottery’s start in 1985, its players have won more than $2.8 billion in prizes while the lottery has raised more than $1.3 billion for the state programs that benefit all Iowans.
Today, lottery proceeds in Iowa have three main purposes: They provide support for veterans, help for a variety of significant projects through the state General Fund, and backing for the Vision Iowa program, which was implemented to create tourism destinations and community attractions in the state and build and repair schools.
