DENVER (AP) - Colorado Lottery officials say a Utah resident won
$1 million by matching five numbers in the Powerball drawing Saturday and choosing the Power Play option for an extra $1.
Lottery officials say the ticket holder wanted to remain anonymous.
The winner claimed the $1 million prize Monday in Grand Junction. The ticket was sold at a Loaf 'n' Jug store in Dinosaur, just east of the Utah border. The store gets a $3,000 bonus for selling the lucky ticket.
