An Oregon man who purchased a lottery ticket in Arizona is now a multi-millionaire.

Frederick Hallwyler purchased a few lottery tickets, including four quick picks for The Pick drawing on Saturday, Sept. 26, from a vending machine in Avondale.

He returned to Portland and remembered to check his tickets three days later. What he found out was that one of his tickets matched all six numbers for the $6,285,618 jackpot.

He signed his ticket and flew back to Phoenix to claim his winnings.

According to the Arizona Lottery, Hallwyler plans on relocating to Arizona eventually, and visits often to take advantage of its golf courses and sporting events.
