KEWAUNEE - UPDATE: The winner has been identified as Michelle Grant of Denmark. Lottery officials say she chose to take a single lump-sum cash payment of $2.9 million, which is worth $1.98 million after taxes.
A ticket sold in Kewaunee matched all six winning numbers in the Wisconsin Lottery's Saturday Megabucks drawing to claim the game's $4 million jackpot.
That's according to a press release from the Wisconsin Lottery.
Officials say the $4 million winning ticket was sold at Lakeshore Lighthouse on Center Street.
The winner has 180 days from the drawing to claim the prize at the Lottery's headquarters in Madison. Once the winning ticket is validated by the Lottery, the winner will have up to 60 days to choose the $4 million annuity jackpot, or the jackpot's $2.9 million lump sum cash payment.
Saturday night's winning Megabucks numbers were 11, 16, 23, 27, 28 and 46.
Megabucks is a jackpot game played only in Wisconsin, with drawings every Wednesday and Saturday. Jackpots begin at $1 million and grow based on sales. Players receive two plays for $1 and win the jackpot by matching the six winning numbers drawn. The odds of winning the Megabucks jackpot are 1:7 million.
The last Megabucks jackpot winner was Betty Christopherson of Oconomowoc. Christopherson won $6.3 million in the October 3, 2012, Megabucks drawing.
