Milwaukee man wins $1 million after Saturday's Powerball drawing
MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Jason Peck of Milwaukee is one of two Wisconsin $1 million winners from Saturday's record $590.5 million Powerball jackpot drawing, and the first to claim his prize.
Peck brought his $1 million winning ticket to the Lottery's Madison headquarters this afternoon. After taxes he will receive a lump sum payment of $672,500.
He purchased his ticket just before the close of sales Saturday night at Pick 'N Save, 1100 E. Garfield in Milwaukee. Peck told Lottery staff he often selects his own numbers, but bought a quick pick ticket on a whim.
For selling Peck's $1 million winning ticket, Pick 'N Save earns a $20,000 commission from the Lottery. Lottery retailers who sell winning tickets with prizes of $600 or more earn a commission equal to 2% of the prize, up to a maximum of $100,000.
Peck has agreed to take part in a news conference Thursday, May 23rd in Milwaukee.
Saturday's winning Powerball numbers were 10, 13, 14, 22 and 52. The Powerball was 11. Peck's ticket matched the five regular winning numbers to win the $1 million prize.
A $1 million ticket was also sold in Antigo for Saturday night's Powerball drawing. That prize has not yet been claimed.
