— Someone in southwest Kansas is a bit wealthier after winning a $1 million prize in a Powerball drawing this week.

The Garden City Telegram reports a Sublette resident who doesn't want to be identified claimed the prize Thursday morning at the Kansas Lottery's office in Great Bend.

The winning ticketholder bought $20 in tickets at a convenience store in Sublette, one of which matched the first five Powerball numbers, but not the Powerball, in Wednesday's drawing.

The store will get a $1,000 bonus for selling the ticket.
