There must be something in the water because it seems like every few days we keep getting news of yet ANOTHER lottery winner. Why is it never us, right?

2021 was already a big year for Iowa lottery winners when one Waterloo woman won $100,000. Not even a full week later, yet another woman in Waterloo took home the big cash prize of $30,000. By the end of April, a third Waterloo woman had claimed a $20,000 payout. In total, $150,000 went directly into the pockets of several Cedar Valley residents. Another Waterloo man sweetened up the pot by winning another $100,000 in April of 2021.

A few weeks ago Keith and Karla Elenz of New Hampton picked up the $2 million Powerball prize in Clive.

The Elenz's ticket was the only $2 million winner in the entire country, according to officials. It was only one number off from getting a cut of that major $26.8 million jackpot. The first five numbers matched the numbers drawn, winning a nice $1 million.
