Wisconsin $1Million Winner Claims Prize

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012 at 6:26 am

The winner of the $1 million prize in the Powerball drawing over the weekend has come forward to claim it.

Wisconsin lottery officials say Christy Stanczak validated her winning ticket on Tuesday. The 26-year-old from West Allis says she never plays Powerball, but she had been on a lucky streak lately so she figured, why not. After taxes, Stanczak will receive a lump sum of $672,500.

Stanczak bought a $10 quick-pick ticket at a grocery store in Brookfield. One set of numbers matched all five Powerball numbers in Saturday’s drawing.
