MADISON, Wis.--- One man is the lucky winner of all three top prizes from the SuperCash! daily lotto game.

Verlyn Adamson of Mount Horeb matched all six numbers of 3, 10, 15, 23, 26 and 34.

Adamson purchased his tickets at three different locations in Dane County: Kwik Trip, 7538 West Mineral Point Road in Verona; Kwik Trip, 525 Springdale Street in Mount Horeb; Cenex Convenience Store, 1225 Hwy 18/151 in Mount Horeb.

After taxes, Adamson received a payment of $707,175.39. Adamson wasn't the only winner, each store earns a $7,000 retailer incentive (or 2 percent of the total price) for selling the winning ticket.

This is the second time Adamson won multiple top prizes of $350,000 playing SuperCash! He won on four different tickets in August 2008.

The odds of winning the Supercash! $350,000 top prize are approximately 1:1.7 million.

3, 10, 15, 23, 26 and 34

Those six magical numbers just made a few people much wealthier.

Three tickets were bought all matching the six winning SuperCash! numbers on Monday, all bought in Dane County, two bought in the same town, each ticket $350,000.

One ticket was bought at the Kwik Trip on Mineral Point Road in Verona. The other two tickets were both bought in Mount Horeb, one at the Kwik Trip on Springdale and the other at a convenience store on Hwy18/151.

"This is a pretty unusual event" says Laura McLay, a professor at UW-Madison.

How unusual? Consider this.

If everyone in Dane County buys a lottery ticket, then the chance of there being three or more winners in the county would happen about every year.

If half of everyone in Dane County buys a lottery ticket, then the odds of at least three people winning would happen every five years.

But, not everyone in Dane County is buying a lottery ticket every day, not even half, so a more likely scenario, chances are three people in the county winning would happen every 584 years.

"You're more likely to win the lottery than to be eaten by a bear or a shark” says McLay.

Well, at least there's that...
