TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Another publicity-shy Kansas resident has won a big prize in a multistate lottery game.

The Kansas Lottery says a Topeka resident has claimed a $1 million "Match 5" prize in the April 4 Powerball drawing. The lottery said Tuesday the person declined to be publicly identified in claiming the prize Monday.

Powerball players win the "Match 5" prize by correctly guessing the five white-ball numbers in a drawing. The prize used to be $200,000; it rose to $1 million under changes that took effect in January.

Kansas allows lottery winners to remain anonymous. A Kansas resident chose to do just that earlier this month after winning one-third of a $656 million Mega Millions jackpot. That individual took a one-time cash payment of nearly $158 million, worth $110.5 million after taxes.
