$1 million Powerball winner will buy home for mom

Posted: Updated:

A Providence man became $1 million richer on Tuesday.

Dashiel Florez claimed the $1 million Powerball prize from a ticket he bought at a convenience store on Benefit Street just minutes before sales closed.

The drawing was held on Oct. 5.

Florez said he played a combination of numbers from his nephews' birthdays.

Florez's mother was with him when he claimed the prize. Florez says he plans to buy a house for her.
