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

Lynn Belluci-Adams claimed the 60th of 97 top prizes of $30,000 available in the Iowa Lottery's "Crossword" instant-scratch game.

Belluci-Adams won her first $30,000 top prize in December 2008, playing the "Candy Cane Crossword" instant-scratch game.

Belluci-Adams claimed her most recent prize Tuesday at Iowa Lottery headquarters in Des Moines. She purchased her winning ticket at Casey's, 114 Mamie Eisenhower Ave. in Boone.

Crossword is a $3 scratch game. Players win a prize by uncovering at least three complete words in the ticket's puzzle. If a player uncovers 10 words, he/she wins $30,000. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are 1 in 3.82.

Thirty-seven top prizes of $30,000 are still up for grabs in Crossword, as well as 59 prizes of $3,000 and thousands more prizes of $300 and $100.
