Only in America can this kind of thing happen. A immigrant from Kenya becomes a U.S. citizen and wins the Iowa State lottery. It would have been an even bigger story if he was the winner of the Mega Million $258 million dollar drawing two weeks ago.

Bittok said he took the citizenship oath at the federal building in Des Moines Friday then went shopping with his family. They stopped at a gas station to check his lottery ticket from the Sept. 21 drawing.

Bittok, 40, an officer at the Iowa Correctional Institute for Women in Mitchellville, said he doesn’t know exactly what he will do with his winnings, but a college fund for the couples 4-year-old daughter, Mindy, is top priority.

Bittok chose to receive his winnings in 25 annual payments of about $52,920 after taxes.
