DOVER, Del.- A man from Bridgeville won big from Wednesday night's Powerball drawing, according to the Delaware Lottery. 

46-year-old Jeffrey Clouser had lost hope on winning after finding out a Massachusetts woman had won the $758.7 million.  He was surprised when he discovered he won $50,000. 

Clouser said he wasn't planning on purchasing tickets, but when he stopped by a Royal Farms to pick up some things for his wife, who wasn't feeling well, he figured he'd throw his name into the hat. 

“I purchased five tickets, and it wasn’t until I checked the last ticket that I knew I was a winner,” said Clouser, who is married with four children. “I thought the ticket was maybe worth $100, but when I pulled it up on the website to [verify], I saw that it was for $50,000—I couldn’t believe it!”

When Clouser was asked how he'd spend his earnings he said he wants to take his wife on a tropical vacation.
