An Iowa man won $1 million from a Mega Millions ticket but he believes that the winning ticket given to him was the result of a mistake by the store clerk.

Josh Buster, 40, is a prep chef at a restaurant in Burlington. He said that he asked the store clerk for five easy-pick plays for the Mega Millions drawing on Friday but that he was only given one. Buster claims that this is what caused him to receive the winning ticket, according to a release from the Iowa Lottery.

"I feel like that changed the numbers that I would have gotten if he had put them all on one instead of making that mistake," Buster said in the release.

Buster explained how he was shocked to suddenly notice that he was $1 million richer.

"I got up to go to work early in the morning. I opened up the lottery app and scanned my tickets. I always keep my tickets in the console of my car. And I scanned it in the car and freaked out and ran back inside,” Buster said.

"I don't usually have good luck, so I thought it was a mistake and there was going to be an error," he said. "So, I Googled the lottery numbers to make sure I had the right ones, and I did! And then the rest of the day, I'm just waiting to wake up from a dream,” he added.

Buster told the lottery that he plans to use the money that he won to pay off his car loan and mother's mortgage along with saving for retirement.
