$1 million Wisconsin lottery ticket: Time running out to claim it

Time is running out for the winner of an unclaimed $1 million lottery ticket purchased in Milwaukee.

The Wisconsin lottery says the Megabucks ticket was purchased at Lisbon Express on Jan. 6. An appointment to cash the ticket with state lottery officials in Madison must be made by July 2 or it will go unclaimed.

The winner can choose between a $1 million annuity or $400,000 in cash.

The Megabucks game, played only in Wisconsin, has had another jackpot winner this year. A Sheboygan man claimed a $1 million jackpot drawn Feb. 3.

Lisbon Express received $20,000 incentive for selling the ticket.

The numbers for the unclaimed winning ticket are 3, 7, 17, 22, 33 and 44.

Potential fireworks shortage ahead of Fourth of July

Fireworks sales have been explosive since the pandemic began. But with high demand and supply chain issues, we may see a fireworks shortage this summer.
