MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wisconsin lottery officials say a Milwaukee man claimed the $1 million prize he won in last week’s Powerball drawing.

The lottery said in a statement Monday that Dennis Walczyk has come forward.

Walczyk bought a $1 quick-pick ticket in West Allis for the Sept. 7 drawing. He matched all five regular winning numbers but not the Powerball, making the ticket a $200,000 winner. But since he also bought the $1 Power Play multiplier option, the jackpot was multiplied by five.

After taxes, Walczyk’s million-dollar ticket will be worth $672,500. The store where he bought the ticket gets a $20,000 commission.

Walczyk works at a New Berlin company that refurbishes and rebuilds machines used to recycle plastics.
