Doyle Henson bought the ticket at the OnCue express at 1 N.W. 23rd Street. He matched all five white balls in the Powerball drawing from January 16. Because he paid an extra dollar for the Power Play option, he doubled his money and won $2 million.

After state and federal taxes, Henson received more than $1.4 million. He says he plans to retire.

Tonight at 10:00 p.m. News 9's Steve Shaw sits down with Doyle to talk about how this will change his life.
