DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A Des Moines man has added $250,000 to this year’s winnings from the Iowa Lottery.

In February Tom Clark won $77,777 in a lottery scratch game. The lottery says Clark won $250,000 more Thursday from a scratch game ticket he bought that morning.

The 63-year-old told lottery officials that he will use the prize money for paying his mortgage and funding his retirement.

He said: “I’m just going to enjoy life from now on.”
