A Benton County man said he plans to buy a new motorcycle after winning a lottery prize of more than $60,000.
Skyler Kimm, 29, of Blairstown, won a jackpot prize of $60,144 in the Iowa Lottery's "JACKPOT PARTY Progressive" InstaPlay game. He bought his winning ticket at Kimm's Mini Mart, 604 Locust St. in Blairstown.
Kimm, a sheet metal-worker, claimed his prize on Wednesday at the lottery's Cedar Rapids regional office.
The JACKPOT PARTY Progressive jackpot starts at $10,000 and increases with each ticket sold statewide until it is won.
The InstaPlay product combines features from instant-scratch and lotto games. InstaPlay tickets are called "scratchless" because they have no security coating that needs to be removed to determine the prize won. And rather than having supplies of tickets printed in advance like those in traditional scratch and pull-tab games, InstaPlay tickets are printed on demand from the lottery terminal.
InstaPlay games range in price from $1 to $20. For more information, visit ialottery.com.
