LAPEER, Mich. (AP) -

The Michigan gas station that sold last month's $337 million Powerball jackpot-winning ticket is getting ready to collect its bonus.

The Michigan Lottery says its Commissioner M. Scott Bowen will present the owners of the Sunoco gas station in Lapeer with a $50,000 ceremonial check on Wednesday afternoon.

The gas station is located about 45 miles northeast of Detroit.

Donald Lawson, a father of two from Lapeer, earlier claimed the Powerball prize from the Aug. 15 drawing.

The lump-sum, $224.6 million payment worked out to $158.7 million, after taxes.

The jackpot was the third largest in the game's history.
