It's been a great month for Hawley Food Mart. Located on 683 S. Hawley Rd. in Milwaukee, the Wisconsin Lottery retailer sold a winning $100,000 Powerball ticket on Wednesday for the August 30 drawing. The winning ticket matched four of five numbers (4-13-35-61-69) plus the Powerball (4). The ticket included the $1 Power Play option turning a $50,000 win into a $100,000 win because of the 2X Power Play multiplier.
It is the second time this month that Hawley Food Mart has sold a large winning ticket. On August 4, the store sold a winning $30,384 Fast Play Progressive Jackpot ticket.
Hawley Food Mart is no stranger to big Lottery wins. In addition to the Powerball and Fast Play wins, the retailer has sold three $10,000 winning scratch tickets in the last two years.
"Lately, a lot of people are talking about us as a lucky store," said Hawley Food Mart Manager, Pramod Patel. "We've had many $1,000 winners along with the big tickets. Lottery is popular here."
Wisconsin Lottery retailers who sell winning tickets over $599 receive a two percent Retailer Performance Winning Ticket Incentive, up to $100,000.
