MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A military veteran from Superior collected a $1 million Powerball prize on Friday.
Glen Erickson from Superior matched all five numbers not including the Powerball in the February 2 drawing.
Erickson told Lottery officials that he did not use a particular method when he bought his winning ticket.
“I work part-time and my co-worker told me that there was a Powerball win in town and mentioned the location,” said Erickson. “It got me curious, but I didn’t have the ticket with me at the time. I called my elderly mother and asked her to go to my desk and read the number to me. After the call, I told my co-worker that my numbers matched. They went crazy, but it still had not hit me.”
Erickson will proceed with life as usual and already has a specific plan in mind for his winnings.
“It won’t change who I am, except that I’ll have the ability to help more of the people that I want to help.”
