OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- An Arkansas man was too excited to finish his meal when he learned he won $200,000 with a Powerball ticket purchased in Roland, Oklahoma.

But at least Lane Rogers' waitress got a pretty good tip.

The 38-year-old Alma, Arkansas, truck driver walked out of the lottery commission office Monday with a giant cardboard check tucked under his arm. He also carried a real check, which he said will help him and his wife build a new house.

Rogers' ticket matched five numbers in Saturday's Powerball drawing, just one Powerball number away from scoring the $180-million jackpot.

Another $200,000 ticket with five matching numbers was sold in Norman, but that person hasn't come forward.

Delwin Gray of Bethany won $40,000 and a ticket sold in Tulsa won $10,000 on Saturday.
