$1 Million Tipton Powerball Prize Claimed
TIPTON, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- A $1 Million Powerball prize was claimed six months after it was won in Tipton today. After months of searching, Iowa Lottery officials contacted a man who'd won the prize in November but didn't know it. Richard Watson of Belton, Missouri says he travels for work and buys lottery tickets from most of his stops, and just hadn't checked it. Watson says when he got the call, he thought it was a scam. He says he plans to spend his winnings on a move to Las Vegas where he's originally from.
