Ronald Crady of Kellogg on Winning Streak in 'Cash Bonanza'
DES MOINES, Iowa - A Jasper County man is definitely on a winning streak in one of the Iowa Lottery's instant-scratch games.
Ronald Crady, of Kellogg, now has won two prizes of $10,000 in the "Cash Bonanza" game and four prizes of $1,000. He claimed his latest $10,000 prize Monday at lottery headquarters in Des Moines.
"I don't know if I'm lucky, but I sure feel lucky," he said.
Crady, 70, purchased his latest winning ticket at Casey's, 409 N. Front St. in Montezuma. He works in the kitchen at a grocery store in Grinnell and said he got a scratch ticket with his regular soda purchase.
"I scratched it off. I looked at it - $10,000 - I got out and done a little dance in the street, opened the back door (and) kissed my wife," he said.
Cash Bonanza is a $10 scratch game. Players win a prize by matching any of "your numbers" to any of the "winning numbers" and win the prize shown for that number. If players find the "coin" symbol, they win that prize instantly. If they find the "star" symbol, they win double the prize amount shown for that symbol. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are 1 in 3.57.
Two top prizes of $250,000 are still up for grabs in Cash Bonanza, as well as five prizes of $10,000, 14 prizes of $4,000, 212 prizes of $1,000 and several thousand prizes of $500, $200 and $100.Return to top↑
