DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) _ A 70-year-old Webster City man has claimed his $1 million Powerball prize.
Iowa Lottery officials say Tom Christeson went to lottery headquarters in Des Moines on Tuesday to present his ticket.
He bought the ticket at a Hy-Vee store in Urbandale while out to dinner with relatives. His ticket matched five of the six Powerball numbers drawn Saturday
night: 8, 11, 21, 44 and 49. The ticket didn't match the Powerball number of 22, so Christeson didn't win the $80 million Powerball jackpot.
Christeson says he drives a grain truck at the Heartland Co-op in Randall and had been planning to retire in January. He says he'll keep those plans and work through the busy harvest season.
His plans for the money include expanding his house.
