DECORAH, Iowa (AP) — An 80-year-old Decorah (deh-KOR’-uh) man has claimed his $2 million Powerball prize.
Don Johnson claimed his prize Wednesday and said he’ll use the money to pay for his wife’s nursing home care.
The Iowa Lottery says Johnson picked five of the first six numbers in Saturday’s drawing but missed the Powerball number. He’d added the Power Play to his ticket, so the $1 million prize for five numbers was doubled to $2 million.
The jackpot-winning ticket in Saturday’s $131.5 million Powerball drawing was sold in Philadelphia.
