$100,000 Powerball Ticket Purchased in Milwaukee
Lottery retailer sells second big winning ticket in August

MADISON, Wisconsin

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.

Players have 180 days from the draw date to claim their winnings. Information on how to claim a prize is available at wilottery.com/winners/claim-prize.

Powerball drawings are Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 9:59 p.m. Tickets must be purchased before 9 p.m. to be included in a drawing. The next Powerball drawing is Saturday, September 2, where the estimated jackpot is $420 million.

Players can check to see if their ticket is a winner by going to wilottery.com or by using the Lottery's new mobile app, available on the App Store or Google Play.

For the $1 Powerball Play add-on option, the odds of a 2X multiplier being drawn on Wednesday night were 1:1.75. Power Play does not apply to the jackpot. A $1,000,000 prize can become $2,000,000 with the Power Play. The Power Play multiplier for the $1,000,000 prize can never be greater than 2X.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1:292,201,338.

The odds of winning a Fast Play Progressive Jackpot are 1:240,000.
