There's a new way to be a millionaire in Iowa!

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV)

There's a new way to become a mega-millionaire in Iowa

The Iowa Lottery kicked off the Mega Millions Lottery Game today in Sioux City.

Each customer that entered the Pump and Pak on Floyd Boulevard got a chance to play the game for free.

The odds of winning Mega Millions is one in one-hundred-seventy-five million.

Because of a tight economy the Iowa Lottery says sales have been down.

"This year has been a little different, this economy has affected people in a way that a lot of players had cut back in their expenditure and for good reasons," said Chuck Ellis with the Iowa Lottery.

The game is available in thirty-three states, but is not yet available in Nebraska or South Dakota.
