FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - The winner of the $1 million Powerball ticket was introduced Thursday morning in Fort Wayne.
Robert Kincaid, of Fort Wayne, brought his grandchildren to the Lassus Handy Dandy on Lima Road to claim his prize during the press conference.
Kincaid bought the ticket in this past weekend's drawing at the Lassus Handy Dandy located at 10040 Lima Road in Fort Wayne. Kincaid said he is a regular at the Lassus Handy Dandy.
Kincaid said he won with numbers of his own choosing that he's been playing for several years.
Kincaid said he is going to share the money with his son and daughter, and grandkids. He also splurged on a fully-loaded Toyota Tundra. Kincaid said he paid cash for it.
Kincaid works for Micropulse in Columbia City and said he has no plans to retire any time soon.
"I'm not even considering it," said Kincaid. "I love what I do."
Kincaid said winning the $1 million dollar prize was a game-changer, not a life changer.
Lassus also received a $10,000 check for selling the winning ticket.
The multi-state lottery's website said the Powerball jackpot has soared to $475 million Thursday after none of the tickets sold matched all the winning numbers in Wednesday night's drawing: 2, 11, 26, 34, 41 and a Powerball of 32.
The next drawing will be held Saturday.
