Iowa Lottery approves sale of Mega Millions

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The Iowa Lottery has approved the Mega Millions lottery game in Iowa.

A vote approving the game last night followed an agreement reached by U.S. lottery directors last month.

The agreement calls for all U.S. lotteries to work toward cross-selling the Powerball and Mega Millions games next year and the development of a national lotto game sometime late next year.

Mega Millions tickets are scheduled to go on sale in Iowa on Jan. 31, with the first drawing set for Feb. 2.
