Sherri Hinders Claims Top Prize in

New ‘Winner’s Circle’ Scratch Game


CLIVE, Iowa – A Butler County woman said she needed confirmation that she won a big lottery prize before she started to celebrate.

Sherri Hinders of Greene claimed the fifth of 10 top prizes of $30,000 available in the Iowa Lottery’s “Winner’s Circle” scratch game.

“I scratched off the whole circle and I was kind of in shock and I didn’t trust myself so I took it back to the store and said, ‘Would you check this, please?’” Hinders told lottery employees Monday as she claimed her prize at the lottery’s regional office in Mason City.

Hinders said she purchased her winning ticket at Express Mart, 214 N. First St. in Greene last week, and returned to that store to have her ticket verified.

The 56-year-old retiree said she typically only buys scratch tickets about once a month, but she said she had a feeling to buy a couple of tickets last week.

“I don’t know what made me buy them that day, I just did,” she said.

Hinders said she plans to share some of her lottery winnings with family and save the rest.

Winner’s Circle is a $3 scratch game. Players scratch the “Lucky Numbers” to reveal numbers. For each number revealed, he/she will scratch that same number each time it is found in either of the game rings. If, in any one the game rings, a player exactly matches all the numbers in the inner ring; or the middle ring; or the outer ring; or in one, two, three or four of the four wedges, they win the corresponding prize as indicated in the prize legend. If a player exactly matches all the numbers in all four wedges of one game ring, they win the game’s $30,000 top prize. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are 1 in 3.77.

Five top prizes of $30,000 are still up for grabs in Winner’s Circle, as well as 50 prizes of $1,000 and hundreds of prizes of $100.
