DES MOINES, Iowa - A Fountain City, Wis. man was traveling through Allamakee County when he decided to buy a Mega Millions ticket and ended up winning a $10,000 prize from the Oct. 12 drawing.

James Clare claimed his prize Friday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Mason City. He purchased his winning ticket at Kwik Star, 301 Main St. in Lansing.

The winning numbers in the $61 million Mega Millions drawing on Oct. 12 were: 10-31-36-37-43 and Mega Ball 15. The Megaplier® number that night was 4. Clare's ticket matched the four white balls and the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize. Had he added the Megaplier option to his ticket, Clare would have multiplied his $10,000 win by four to claim a $40,000 prize.
