Steven Roth won $50,000 on an Iowa scratch off and the first thing he told his wife is that he’s giving to their kids.
When Roth claimed his prize at the Iowa Lottery headquarters last week, he told officials he was going to give each of his 6 kids $1,000. Roth claimed the sixth of 34 top prizes for Iowa’s newest scratch off: Super Crossword. Roth scratched his winning ticket in his truck after work. Roth works as a a foreman for a local construction company, Neumann Brothers Construction. After realizing he had won, Roth called his wife, Dawn, who thought he was messing with her.
Roth’s very lucky children range from ages 18-33. Some of his lucky children have spoken to their dad and cannot believe the luck he has had. They did not know their dad’s plans to share with them when he went to claim his prize.
Roth purchased his winning ticket at a Git-N-Go in DesMoines, and he and his wife are discussing other ways to spend the winnings. First and foremost, Roth plans to take care of his wife.
