A Glendale man is $400,000 richer today after matching five of the winning numbers from Saturday's $53 million Powerball drawing, not once but twice.

The winning ticket had two sets of the winning $200,000 numbers on it. The retailer that sold the $400,000 special ticket was Circle K, 2439 W. Union Hills Road, Phoenix.

Jeffery B. Pessetto is the playerwho walked away with $400,000 after using his own numbers for Saturday's Powerball drawing. He has been playing the special numbers for the past two years.Pessetto plans on paying off some bills and purchasing a home with his winnings.

"The excitement for the rolling Powerball is starting to grow, and Saturday's drawing with one ticket in Arizona possessing not one but two $200,000 prizes on the same ticket was a fun, first for me!" said Art Macias, executive director for the Arizona Lottery.
