A Chicago man won $100,000 with a lottery ticket he bought online last month.

Larry Schaibley matched four numbers plus the Powerball in the July 27 drawing, according to the Illinois Lottery.

Schaibley, who has lived in Chicago for 52 years, was at home when he bought his ticket and when he received an email letting him know he’d won.

“When I read the email, I almost fell off my chair,” he said.

He plans to use his winnings to buy a new car and invest.
