DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A man in central Iowa has claimed his $1 million prize in the Powerball lottery game.

Iowa Lottery officials say George Dickerson, of Colfax, bought a ticket on Dec. 30 that eventually ultimately the first five numbers of that night’s drawing but missed the Powerball number and, thus, the jackpot.

Dickerson bought the ticket at a Kum & Go convenience store in Colfax.

The jackpot eventually climbed to nearly $560 million. A lone Powerball ticket sold in New Hampshire matched all six numbers Saturday night, one day after another single ticket sold in Florida nabbed a $450 million Mega Millions grand prize.
