INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): An Evansville grandfather is $50,000 richer after Saturday’s Powerball drawing.

According to the Hooiser Lottery, Charles Maas won $50,000 after matching 4 of 5 numbers and the Powerball with a Quick Pick ticket purchased at Buehler’s IGA in Evansville. He checked the numbers in Sunday’s paper and knew he won, but wasn’t sure how much.

“(I knew) it would be enough to cover the gas to drive up to Indianapolis,” Charles said.

After checking the Hoosier Lottery website, Charles realized he’d won $50,000. However, he still wasn’t convinced.

“I’ll believe it when I see it,” he joked of his prize money before his claim was processed.

Charles is a regular Powerball player and occasional Hoosier Lotto player. He plans to put his prize toward college funds for his grandchildren.
