Snowbird claims $1 million Powerball runner-up prize

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

He didn't match all six numbers, but a Colorado man is still a millionaire after Saturday night's Powerball drawing.

The Arizona Lottery says Craig Krause, a winter visitor from Colorado, purchased five Quick Pick tickets from a Fry's grocery in Queen Creek.  One of them matched five out of six numbers for the $1 million runner-up prize.

"I don‘t have any plans for the money because I wasn't expecting to be a winner," Krause said. "I'll probably pay off some bills and share with my family."

Krause works in the construction field.  He has been traveling to Arizona for the last three years.

This is the 21st $1 million Powerball second prize winning ticket sold in Arizona since $2 Powerball launched in January 2012.
