A San Jose, N.M., man claimed a $502,000 prize from the New Mexico Lottery last week.
Paul Mathews’ ticket for the April 16 Roadrunner Cash drawing matched the winning numbers of 12, 14, 24, 26 and 28.
After buying a used car, Mathews said he plans to give the rest of his prize to children and grandchildren.
“I’ll still be a starving artist,” he said, “but I’ll be a contented artist.”
