A 58-year-old Osage, Iowa man claimed his $2 million Powerball prize on Thursday.

Duane Hanson's winning ticket for Wednesday night's $80 million drawing matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball number. He'd added a Power Play option, which multiplied his $1 million prize to $2 million before taxes. He told lottery officials that he's played the same random set of numbers for years.

Hanson works as a conductor for the Cedar River Railroad in Waterloo. He bought the winning ticket at a convenience store in Osage. Hanson says the prize will help with his retirement investments when he quits working in 2015.
