DES MOINES, Iowa  --  After winning the lottery, a Des Moines man doesn't plan on taking a trip any time soon.

Instead, he's going to invest his money.

Brian Spicer is now $20,000 richer after purchasing a Lotto America ticket this weekend at the C Fresh Market in Des Moines. Spicer often purchases lotto tickets, but almost missed his chance to purchase the winning ticket.

"I came in at 7:56. Tickets have to be purchased by 8:00 and I usually mix and match my numbers and move them around, but I only had three minutes to play the numbers so I just played the numbers," he said.

Spicer and his wife plan on putting the money towards two of their personal businesses, including starting a food truck.
