An Iowa man who won a $4.38 million lottery jackpot said his luck was compounded by the fact he got his ticket for free as part of a promotion.

Chuck Anderson of Davenport visited Iowa Lottery headquarters on Thursday to claim his $4.38 million prize for matching all six numbers in Saturday's Lotto America drawing: 8-15-18-32-45, with Star Ball 1.

Anderson said he hadn't even intended to enter the Lotto America drawing, but he received a free ticket along with the Powerball ticket he purchased during the first week of this month from the Kwik Star store in Davenport.

The Iowa Lottery said it is giving away "Lotto Surprise" free plays this month to random players who buy tickets in games selected by the lottery. The qualifying game chosen for the first week was Powerball, and Anderson was selected when he bought his ticket.

Anderson said he was in disbelief when he checked his numbers.

"I had to check them again," he said. "I had to look a couple times."

The lucky winner joked that he still has his doubts.

"I'm waiting until the money is deposited," he said. "I won't believe it until it's there."
