DES MOINES, Iowa - A Lamoni woman won the first top prize of $30,000 playing the lottery's "Twisted" instant-scratch game.

Twisted is a $3 scratch game. Players scratch the "your numbers" area and the corresponding numbers in the "your paths" area. If players match four numbers with the same colored boxes, they win the prize amount attached to that path color.

Rodriguez claimed the first of 14 top prizes in Twisted. There are more than 100 prizes of $1,000 up for grabs in the game, along with more than 2,000 prizes of $100.
