ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A Santa Fe man has come forward to claim a $1 million prize in the multi-state Powerball game.
New Mexico Lottery officials say Michael Vigil was one winning number away from taking the $40 million jackpot in last Saturday's drawing.
Still, he's the state lottery's seventh millionaire so far this year.
Vigil told lottery officials in Albuquerque that he plans to use his prize to pay bills, visit family out of state and travel abroad.
