WIND LAKE, Wis. - Bobbi Mangan of Wind Lake, Wisconsin won $500,000 from a scratch-off ticket she purchased at GP 4 Petroleum LLC -- located on Loomis Road in Wind Lake.
Initially, Mangan thought she won $25,000 from a scratch-off ticket. She counted the nine words on her crossword ticket and looked forward to receiving her winnings.
