Doyle Henson bought the winning ticket last Wednesday. One of his tickets matched five of the six Powerball numbers, which pays $1 million.

But since Henson paid extra for the Power Play option, the prize increased to $2 million.

Henson owns a farm in Choctaw, and he drives part-time for an Oklahoma City Charter bus company.

"How can you absorb this when you have never made any money in your life to amount to anything," said Henson. "I'm still in shock. I don't realize it yet."

Henson said he'll use some of the money to make some repairs to the log cabin he built 32 years ago. The roof took major damage when a tornado hit the area in 2011. He says he's also got his eye on a new tractor.
