CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A husband and wife in northern West Virginia have claimed a Powerball ticket worth $1 million.

Tim and Jo Varca of Shinnston picked up their winnings Thursday at state lottery headquarters in Charleston.

Tim Varca bought the ticket that matched the first five of the six numbers from Saturday’s drawing. The numbers drawn were 22, 23, 24, 45 and 62. The Powerball was 5. The ticket was purchased at a GoMart convenience store in Shinnston.

The couple says they plan to pay some bills, take a European vacation and possibly invest the remainder of their winnings.
