DES MOINES (AP) — A 58-year-old Osage man has claimed his $2 million Iowa Powerball prize.

Iowa Lottery officials say Duane Hanson turned in winning his ticket on Thursday. His ticket for Wednesday night’s $80 million drawing matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball number. He’d added a Power Play option, which multiplied his $1 million prize to $2 million before taxes.

He told lottery officials that he’s played the same random set of numbers for years.

Hanson works as a conductor for the Cedar River Railroad in Waterloo. He bought his winning ticket at a convenience store in Osage. Hanson says the prize will help with his retirement investments when he quits working in 2015.
