DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Two Iowa residents have won separate $1 million lottery prizes this month.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1Shi4zh ) that 49-year-old Mike Hartman of Winfield and 75-year-old Betty Downs of Burlington claimed their prizes Monday.

Hartman won his prize in the Mega Millions drawing on Friday. Downs won in the Nov. 10 drawing but didn’t check her ticket until Friday.

Hartman bought his winning ticket at the Countreestore in Winfield, and Downs bought her ticket at the River Mart convenience store in Burlington. Both businesses will get a $1,000 bonus from the lottery for selling a $1 million winning ticket.

Hartman says he plans to use his winnings for retirement, and Downs plans to pay bills and help her great-granddaughter with college expenses.

Six tickets bought in Iowa have now won $1 million prizes in 2015.
