Half-dozen winners combine for more than $1.3 million in prizes
MADISON – Saturday’s Megabucks and Powerball drawings produced six prize winners around the state, making it a “Winsconsin” weekend. More than $1.3 million in combined winnings, headlined by a Megabucks jackpot, came from tickets sold in Wisconsin.
The $1 million jackpot was sold in Sheboygan, now pushing Fond du Lac’s “Miracle Mile” for the state’s “luckiest” title after its second Megabucks win in as many months. The player matching all six numbers drawn (9, 21, 26, 31, 35, and 47) purchased the ticket at the Kwik Trip on 7002 Sauk Trail Rd.
The current Megabucks Lightning Ball limited-time offer produced a win on a ticket sold at the Kwik Trip on 1200 S. Main St., in River Falls. That player matched five-of-six numbers plus the Lightning Ball for an automatic $10,000 prize.
Saturday’s Powerball drawing produced four winning tickets sold within the state. Each of the four players won $50,000 by matching four-of-five numbers drawn (01, 02, 03, 07, 39) plus the Powerball (25) but one lucky player hit the $150,000 prize by purchasing the Power Play multiplier option.
The $150,000 win came from a ticket sold at Pick ‘n Save on 250 W. Holt Ave. in Milwaukee. The other three winning Powerball tickets were sold in Milwaukee (Speedway at 11800 W. Silver Spring Rd.), New Richmond in St. Croix County (Speedway Super America at 753 N. Knowles Ave.), and Soldiers Grove in Crawford County (Campbell’s One Stop at 100 Sunbeam Blvd. E.)
The odds of matching all six Megabucks numbers to win the jackpot are 1 in 6,991,908. Odds for matching four of five Powerball numbers plus the Powerball for a $50,000 prize is 1 in 913,130.
Each winning retailer receives a payout equal to two percent of the winning prize amount.
