A Hancock County man has won a $300,000 lottery prize.

Donald Sandry of Goodell won the fifth top prize in the Iowa Lottery's "$300,000 Platinum Cash" scratch game.

Sandry purchased his winning ticket at a Belmond Casey's located at 303 River Ave. S. and claimed his prize on Monday at the lottery headquarters in Clive.

The $300,000 Platinum Cash scratch game is a $30 game with eight top prizes of $300,000. The overall odds of the game are 1 in 2.39.

Shockingly, this actually isn't Sandry's first six-figure lottery win.

Back in 2014, Sandry purchased a “$250,000 Club” instant-scratch ticket at Kum & Go, 112 River Ave. S. in Belmond, and ended up winning the first of eight top prizes of $250,000 in the game.
