Iowa Lottery Finally Tracks Down Winner

moneymanAfter six months of searching, Iowa Lottery officials, have finally tracked down the winner of the $1 million Powerball prize won back in November.

Richard Watson, 56, of Belton, Missouri, often travels for work repairing industrial machines and plays the lottery everywhere he goes. “I have a bundle of lottery tickets that I was planning on going through, but I hadn’t yet,” Watson said.

When he received a call from UMB Financial Corp., stating that the Iowa Lottery was trying to get in touch with him, Watson initially thought it was a scam. It wasn’t until he saw the media coverage of the story that he began to think it might not be a trick and gave them a call back. It was then that Watson discovered one of the old unchecked tickets he had stacked up was worth $1 million.

Watson is grateful that the Iowa Lottery officials took the extra steps to find him and award his prize. He plans to use the money to move himself and his elderly parents back to the Las Vegas area where they are originally from and spend more time with them.
