A northwest Iowa man who purchased a Powerball ticket that turned out to be worth $1,000,000 (yep, that's one million bucks) claimed his prize on Monday.

Shane Saxen told Iowa Lottery officials that like many of us, he usually doesn't buy a national lottery ticket until the jackpot's really high. But it's a good thing he broke his own rule because the ticket he bought at a Brew convenience store matched five of the numbers drawn Saturday but missed only 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 is likely going to invest most of his winnings for retirement. Smart move, Shane! Aslo feel free to share with your favorite radio DJ's...
