An Ottumwa man is feeling pretty lucky this month, after winning $50,000 in the Iowa Lottery.

Bryan Howard, 47, collected his winnings Friday.

It was the last top prize available in the lottery’s ‘7 is a Blast’ scratch game.

He’s carrying on a family tradition.

In February, his father, 81-year-old Wayne Howard, also of Ottumwa, won a $10,000 prize from a scratch ticket.

Howard picked up the winning scratch ticket at Yesway on court street last Friday.

That’s right after he redeemed a winning Powerball ticket at the lottery’s headquarters in Clive.

Howard told the Iowa Lottery he plans to save most of the winnings for retirement.
