CLIVE, Iowa (AP) - A 63-year-old Cedar Rapids man has stepped forward as the holder of a Powerball lottery ticket worth $2 million.

Karl Krumbholz claimed the ticket Friday that matched the first five numbers drawn in the Powerball game Wednesday night. He bought the ticket at a North Liberty tobacco shop, which received a $2,000 bonus from the Iowa Lottery for selling the ticket.

Krumbholz, who works in information-technology for University of Iowa Hospitals in North Liberty, will receive $1.4 million after tax withholdings.

Had his ticket also matched the sixth, or Powerball number, Krumbholz would have won the lottery’s $123.4 million jackpot.
