Man says $2M Powerball prize will cushion his retirement
URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa man who won a $2 million Powerball prize says the money will cushion his retirement, update his house and provide a boat for his father.
Rob Maser claimed his winnings Thursday from Wednesday night’s drawing. The ticket he bought at a Kum & Go on 156th Street in Urbandale matched the first five numbers drawn but missed the Powerball number and a chance of winning the $250.3 million jackpot.
Maser also purchased the Power Play option, which multiplied the normal $1 million prize to $2 million.
He says he won’t be quitting his job at an automotive dealership but will be fulfilling the promise he made to his father if he ever won big: the boat.
Wednesday’s winning numbers were 7, 17, 33, 61, 68 and Powerball 4.
