WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita man who won a $1 million Kansas Lottery jackpot had to borrow a car to drive to Topeka to claim the prize because he doesn't own a vehicle.

The man, who is in his 40s, won the lottery's Holiday Millionaire Raffle by matching the winning number of 120833. He, his wife and three children claimed the prize Wednesday afternoon. He declined to allow his name to be released.

The man, who is a house painter, says he is going to use the money to buy a car and a house.

The winner purchased his lucky raffle ticket at a Dillons store in Wichita. The store receives $1,000 for selling the ticket.
