Lucky player canoed into a Million dollars
MADISON, Wis. – Bradley Madison of Hayward’s recent housecleaning really paid off. After selling a canoe he no longer used, Madison used the cash from the sale to try his luck on some Wisconsin Lottery scratch tickets, including the $30 Supreme ticket.
Madison’s Supreme ticket happened to be one of the lucky top prize winners worth $1 Million. Holiday Station Store (10478 State Rd. 27) in Hayward sold the winning ticket.
Retailers who sell winning tickets over $599 receive an incentive of 2 percent of the winning ticket amount up to $100,000. Holiday will receive a $20,000 incentive for selling the ticket.
The odds of winning the Supreme top prize of $1,000,000 are 1:160,000. There is one unclaimed top prize in this game.
The Wisconsin Lottery enriches communities statewide by giving back 93 percent of its revenue to winners, retailers, and Wisconsin homeowners. Of each dollar spent on the Wisconsin Lottery, 57 cents goes back to prizes, 30 cents to property tax credits, seven cents to operations and six cents to retailers.
Since 1988, the Wisconsin Lottery has generated more than $15.3 Billion in total revenue, over $8.7 Billion in prizes paid, and more than $4.6 Billion in funding for property tax credits to eligible Wisconsin homeowners.
