Michigan Man Finds 2-Month-Old Million Dollar Powerball Ticket In Wallet

Daniel Chase, 53, of Alto Michigan checked his December 16 Powerball ticket just last week. It was sitting in his wallet for two months. What he found left him speechless--he won the $1 million Powerball prize.

He matched five of the numbers during the December 16 drawing. In a lottery press release, Chase said "I always put my tickets in my wallet after I buy them and then I'll check them after I've had them for a while. I like waiting because it lets the dream of being a winner go on a little longer, and this time the dream come true."

He and his wife Theresa plan to use the money to travel, for home improvements and to help out their children.
