ALTO, Mich. (AP) - Lottery officials say a western Michigan man had a winning Powerball ticket in his wallet for two months before realizing he had won $1 million.

In a news release, lottery officials said 53-year-old Daniel Chase of Alto won $1 million when his ticket matched the five white balls drawn Dec. 16. The Morning Sun (https://bit.ly/1RBZClz ) reports the Kent County man bought the ticket in Alma.

Chase says he always puts tickets in his wallet after buying them and checks on them after a while because “it lets the dream of being a winner go on” longer. He came across the winning ticket when cleaning out his wallet last week.

Chase and his wife plan to use the winnings to help their children, complete some home improvements, and travel with family.
