AFTER playing Mega Millions for years with a small office pool, two friends finally scored the jackpot.

The two Iowa men, Randy Ferriss and Colton Snyder, each claimed the $1million Mega Millions prize.

Both are long-time employees at the US Department of Agriculture in Ames and have been pooled their money for years in hopes they’d take home the top prize.

While throughout the years there were more members in the group, this time the office pool was just the two of them.

“I wanted to stop several times, but Colton wouldn’t let us,” Randy told lottery officials.

“Yeah, we had to keep rolling,” Colton added.

Randy is the one who buys their tickets and told the officials that they had used previous winnings to purchase their million-dollar prize.

“We turned a $2 winner into $1million,” Colton said.

The men bought their tickets at Casey’s, 1800 S. B Avenue in Nevada, Iowa and was one of four in the country to win a $1million prize in the drawing as the others were in California, Maryland, and Ohio.


Another $1million Mega Millions prize was purchased nearby in Ames and has been unclaimed for about eight months. 

That winning ticket was bought at Gateway Expresse, also known as The Filling Station, at 2400 S. University Blvd. in Ames.

While It matched all five white balls, it missed the Mega Ball to win at the game’s second prize level in the drawing on September 6, 2022. 

Just note that in order to claim the $1million jackpot, the winner or winners only have until September 6, 2023, to do so.

If the jackpot prize is not claimed within the required time limit, each participating state in the Mega Millions game will get back all the money that state contributed, per Mega Millions.

However, the timeline and other factors may vary based on the state.


Mega Millions drawings are held Tuesday and Friday nights at 11pm and cost $2 per ticket.

Players pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers.

Each player can choose five different numbers from one to 70, which are the white balls.

Then, they can pick one number from one to 25, the gold Mega Ball.

However, players may also select Easy Pick/Quick Pick, which randomly generates numbers for them.

If you match all six winning numbers in the drawing, you win the jackpot.

A Lottery player won $3million playing Mega Millions with a little-known trick but I almost didn’t get the money.

Plus, another player won $1million playing Mega Millions and I never even left home.
