Denmark, Wisconsin woman is newest Megabucks millionaire
MADISON (WITI) -- Michelle Grant of Denmark is Wisconsin's newest Megabucks millionaire!
Grant purchased a ticket in Kewaunee that matched all six winning numbers in the Wisconsin Lottery's Saturday, April 13th Megabucks drawing to claim the game's $4 million jackpot. She brought the winning ticket Monday to the Lottery's Madison headquarters where it was validated.
Grant chose to take the $4 million jackpot's single lump-sum cash payment of $2.9 million. She will receive $1.98 million after taxes.
A news conference has been scheduled for Wednesday, April 17th in Kewaunee.
The $4 million winning Megabucks ticket was sold at Lakeshore Lighthouse, 1614 Center Street. For selling that ticket, the store earns an $80,000 commission from the Lottery. Lottery retailers who sell winning tickets with prizes of $600 or more earn the equivalent of 2% of the prize, up to a maximum commission of $100,000.
Saturday night's winning Megabucks numbers were 11, 16, 23, 27, 28 and 46.
