CLIVE — A northwest Iowa man who bought a Powerball ticket that turned out to be worth $1 million claimed his prize Monday.
Shane Saxen told officials at Iowa Lottery headquarters in Clive that he usually doesn’t buy a ticket until the jackpot’s really high.
“In this case, I just decided, ‘Why not? I’ll get one,’” Saxen said.
The ticket he bought at a Brew convenience store matched five of the numbers drawn Saturday but missed the Powerball number and the $80 million jackpot.
