Menomonie Powerball Winner
A Powerball player from Wisconsin has become the state’s 18th jackpot winner after landing the grand prize on Wednesday June 10th. The big win was worth $22 million.
The winning numbers for Wednesday’s drawing were 10, 33, 41, 52 and 54, with a Powerball of 18. There was only one ticket in the whole of the country which matched the full set of numbers, and the Wisconsin Lottery quickly announced that it had been sold in the Badger State.
It has now been revealed that the lucky entry was sold at Synergy Coop Exit 45 on County Road B in Menomonie. The winning retailer will also receive a $100,000 bonus.
"We all know Wisconsin is a lucky place and I'm overjoyed the winning Powerball ticket was sold in our state,” said Wisconsin Lottery Director Cindy Polzin. “I want to give a huge congratulations to Synergy Coop for selling the big winning ticket!"
Wisconsin’s successful record on Powerball has seen it dubbed ‘Winsconsin’, and Polzin is now looking forward to meeting the latest winner. They have 180 days to claim their prize from the date of the drawing, and can choose whether to take the jackpot as an annuity of go for the cash option of $16.7 million.
Wisconsin’s biggest ever Powerball win came just last year, when Manuel Franco from Milwaukee landed a jackpot of $768 million on March 27th.
Only three states – Indiana, Missouri and Minnesota – have had more winners than Wisconsin following the latest win.
