BETTENDORF, Iowa — Mega Millions lottery tickets for the $1.337 billion drawing on Friday, July 29 brought in more than $5.6 million in Iowa. 

Although the giant jackpot was won by a ticket purchased in Illinois, one lucky ticket purchased in Bettendorf won the $2 million prize, according to the Iowa Lottery.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Big 10 Mart located at 999 Middle Road in Bettendorf. The ticket matched the five white balls but missed the Mega Ball to win a $1 million prize. But because the player who bought the ticket added the Megaplier option to the purchase, the prize money was doubled.
