The Iowa Lottery says that X The Money is a $5 scratch game that features eight top prizes of $50,000 and overall odds of 1 in 3.27. Congrats to Vanessa on being the 5th person from the Quad Cities to win this month!

This month, there have been four major winners in the Quad Cities. Earlier this month, Davenport had not one but two lottery winners. Christine Sanders won $50,000 (she got her ticket at Express Lane Gas & Food Mart on North Harrison) and Mason Brower won $30,000 (he got his ticket at W Mart on East Locust).

On June 14th, we told you about a Rryan Claussen of Eldridge who won $100,000 on a scratch-off ticket when he was on a road trip with his dad. He bought that winning ticket at Casey's (1800 S. B Ave.) in Nevada.
