DES MOINES, Iowa - A Polk County woman has won a $30,000 lottery prize.

Barbara Wilson-DeWitt of Berwick claimed the fifth of eight top prizes of $30,000 available in the Iowa Lottery's "Money Magnet" instant-scratch game.

Wilson-DeWitt claimed her prize Tuesday at the lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. She purchased her winning ticket at Casey's, 1010 SE Oralabor Road in Ankeny.

Money Magnet is a $3 scratch game. Players try to match any of "your numbers" to the numbers that match exactly in each of the four games in the playing area. If a player matches all of the numbers in a game, they win the prize shown for that game. Each game is played separately. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are 1 in 3.73.

Three top prizes of $30,000 are still up for grabs in Money Magnet, along with 13 prizes of $1,000 and 85 prizes of $100.
