DES MOINES, Iowa - A Tama man has won a $10,000 lottery prize.

Owen Kapayou claimed the second of eight prizes of $10,000 available in the Iowa Lottery's new "Make My Year™" instant-scratch game.

Kapayou claimed his prize Monday at the lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. He purchased his winning ticket at Casey's, 113 W. Highway 30 in Toledo.

The lottery's Make My Week™ game is part of a series of games that have a similar look, feel and gameplay, but vary in size, cost and prizes offered. The price point and top prize increase with the length of time indicated in the game's name. For example, players can win up to $10,000 playing the $2 Make My Week™ game, but can win up to $100,000 playing the $10 Make My Year™ game. A $1 Make My Day™ ticket and a $5 Make My Month™ ticket are part of the same series of games. Players scratch the "stars" in the playing area on each ticket and match game symbols to win prizes.

Five top prizes of $100,000 are still up for grabs in Make My Year™, as well as six prizes of $10,000, 243 prizes of $1,000 and thousands of prizes between $100 and $300.
