$10,000 Lottery Ticket Purchased in Mount Pleasant

A ticket sold at the Big 10 Mart in Bettendorf for Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing is worth two million dollars. It’s one of six tickets sold across the country that matched all but the so-called “Mega Ball.” The person who bought the ticket in Bettendorf paid the extra dollar, doubling the payout to two million. Four other tickets sold in Iowa for Friday night’s drawing are worth 10-thousand dollars each for picking the  “Mega Ball” number and four of the five other numbers. Those four tickets with a 10-thousand dollar prize were sold in Mount Pleasant at the HyVee Gas Newton, Manchester and Storm Lake.
