CLIVE, Iowa (AP) — A Sioux City woman has claimed her $1 million Mega Millions lottery prize.
Iowa Lottery officials say 27-year-old Angelica Chavez turned in her winning ticket Monday at lottery headquarters in Clive.
She’d bought the ticket at Fleet Farm Fuel in Sioux City and came within one number of winning Friday’s $175 million jackpot. Her ticket matched the first five numbers but missed the Mega Ball number.
Chavez says she played numbers she’d written down a few years ago. She wants to put some of the money aside for her daughter’s future and is considering buying rental properties.
