Winner claims $1M prize at Iowa Lottery headquarters
UPDATE: A northwest Iowa man who bought a Powerball ticket that turned out to be worth $1 million claimed his prize Monday.
Shane Saxen told Iowa Lottery officials he usually doesn't buy a ticket until the jackpot's really high. But this time he decided, “Why not? I’ll get one.”
The ticket he bought at a Brew convenience store matched five of the numbers drawn Saturday but missed the Powerball number. The 31-year-old lives in Correctionville and works as a campus security officer at Briar Cliff University in Sioux City.
He says he plans to invest most of his winnings for retirement.
A Powerball ticket sold in northwest Iowa is worth $1 million.
Iowa Lottery officials say the ticket sold in Correctionville, Iowa, matched five of the six winning numbers in Saturday's drawing.
The ticket was sold at a Brew convenience store. The store will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Iowa lottery for selling the winning ticket.
No one matched all six numbers to win the jackpot in Saturday's drawing. So the prize will grow to $90 million for Wednesday's drawing.
