NEW BERLIN, Wisconsin -- Someone is hundreds of millions of dollars richer after buying the lone winning Powerball jackpot ticket at a gas station in New Berlin, Wisconsin, but that multi-millionaire hasn't publically come forward yet.
According to a press release from Powerball Product Group, just one ticket nationwide matched all six numbers in Wednesday night's drawing-- 16, 20, 37, 44, 62 and the Powerball 12-- plus a Power Play multiplier 3X.
Purchased at the Speedway at the corner of Moorland and Beloit, the winning $768.4 million dollar ticket was the third-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history. The winner will have the option of choosing between 30 graduated payments over 29 years or a lump sump payment of $477 million-- both payouts are before taxes.
“It’s going to be a very green spring for our first Powerball jackpot winner(s) of 2019,” said David Barden, Powerball Product Group Chairman and New Mexico Lottery CEO. “A jackpot of this size can make many dreams come true - not just for the winner(s), but for all Lottery beneficiaries and the lucky state of Wisconsin.”
