Waylon Mesplay

CLIVE, Iowa - A Davenport man has won a lottery prize of more than $39,000.

Waylon Mesplay won a JACKPOT PARTY® Progressive InstaPlay jackpot prize of $39,835 on a ticket he purchased at Hy-Vee, 2200 W. Kimberly Road in Davenport. He claimed his prize Tuesday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids.

The JACKPOT PARTY Progressive jackpot starts at $10,000 and increases with each ticket sold statewide until it is won.

The InstaPlay product combines features from instant-scratch and lotto games. InstaPlay tickets are called "scratchless" because they have no security coating that needs to be removed to determine the prize won. And rather than having supplies of tickets printed in advance like those in traditional scratch and pull-tab games, InstaPlay tickets are printed on demand from the lottery terminal.

InstaPlay games range in price from $1 to $20. For more information, visit
