Iowa Treasury wins big in Mega Millions Lottery

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Another big winner from last week's $640 million Mega Millions jackpot was the Iowa State Treasury.

A major prize was not won in Iowa, but the surge in ticket sales paid off for the state.

The Iowa lottery sold close to $10 million in tickets.

The Iowa Treasury will get about a third of that.

The Iowa Lottery chief said between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. Friday, about 6,000 tickets a minute were being sold.
