TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

An East Texas man is $1 million richer after claiming the last of four top prizes in the Maximum Millions scratch-off game.

Ricky Henderson of Tyler, claimed his prize at the Texas Lottery Center in Tyler on Monday.

"I don't think it really hit me when I first scratched off the ticket," said Henderson, "It finally sank in when they gave me the check and now I'm really excited!"

Henderson, who is a single father, says he plans to use some of his winnings to buy homes for himself and his mother, along with making a large investment in his daughter's future.

The Texas Lottery reports that Henderson purchased his winning ticket at the D&N Grocery Store in the 1000 block of West Bow Street in Tyler.

The grocery store is now eligible to receive a $10,000 bonus.

If you're feeling lucky, Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot stands at an estimated $21 million, and Wednesday's Poweball jackpot is 10 times that, with an estimated value of $212 million.
