MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) Wednesday’s $768.4 million Powerball jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Wisconsin at The Speedway gas station on Beloit Road in New Berlin and is the largest in the state’s Lottery history. The jackpot is the third-largest in U.S. Lottery history and Powerball’s second-highest all-time. The winner, however, has not come forward yet.
The winning numbers of 16, 20, 37, 44, 62 and the Powerball number 12 matched those on a ticket sold at a state retailer that will receive a $100,000 payout.
Odds for winning the grand prize are listed by Powerball as 1 in 292,201,338.00. Wednesday was the first Powerball jackpot won in 2019 after it rolled 25 times since the last win on Dec. 26, 2018.
The win marked Wisconsin’s 17th Powerball jackpot since 1988. The Badger State is now tied for sixth on the all-time list of most frequent winning states. Wednesday’s win also came nearly two years to the day since Wisconsin hit its last Powerball jackpot when a Milwaukee resident won $156.2 million on March 22, 2017.
