DENVER (AP) -- Colorado Lottery officials say a Utah resident won $1 million by matching five numbers in the Powerball drawing Saturday and choosing the Power Play option for an extra $1.

Lottery officials say the ticket holder wanted to remain anonymous.

The winner claimed the $1 million prize Monday in Grand Junction, Colo. The ticket was sold at a Loaf N Jug store in Dinosaur, just east of the Utah border. The store gets a $3,000 bonus for selling the lucky ticket.
