MADISON, WI (WSAU) — Once again the Badger State is cashing in on a massive lottery prize.
Wednesday’s $630 million Powerball jackpot will be split between winners in California and Wisconsin, with the Badger State’s winner being sold at an undisclosed retailer in Green Bay. It’s the largest major Powerball prize win in the state since March of 2019 when a West Allis man took home a $768 million prize, and the fourth Powerball or Mega Millions jackpot won by a Wisconsin resident in four years.
Lottery officials say the winning ticket was sold at Jackson Point CITGO on Packerland Drive. The store will receive a bounty from the lottery.
Wednesday’s winning numbers were 6, 14, 25, 33, 46, and the Powerball was 17.
BROWNSVILLE, Texas (ValleyCentral) — Texas Lottery officials said a $1 million ticket was sold in Brownsville.
The ticket, without the Powerball number, was sold at a Stripes Convenience store located at 3301 Southmost Road.
As of yet, no one has come forward to claim the ticket. In 2017 the Texas Legislature enacted HB 59 and it authorized people who win $1 million or more the option to remain anonymous.
BATTLE CREEK, MI (WNWN/WTVB) – There were no Michigan winners in the $632 million Powerball drawing on Wednesday night but a Calhoun County woman has claimed a $1 million Powerball prize from the December 11 drawing.
73-year-old Alma Weimer of Battle Creek, matched the five white balls which were 3, 25, 44, 53 and 64. She bought her winning ticket online at MichiganLottery.com.
Weimer said, “I rarely play the Powerball game, but I saw a pop-up about the large Powerball jackpot when I logged in on the app and thought: ‘Why not?’ and purchased five tickets. When I logged on to the app the next morning, there was a pop-up telling me I won $1 million. I thought it was some sort of scam or that my account had been hacked. Once I called the Lottery to confirm it was real, I couldn’t believe it. It is such an unbelievable feeling.”
SACRAMENTO, Calif. —

The 7-Eleven that sold the big ticket prize was at 6591 Wyndham Drive. The other jackpot ticket was sold in Wisconsin.

$316 million Powerball ticket was sold at Jackson Pointe Citgo in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin Lottery says
GREEN BAY – Someone who bought a Powerball ticket in the Green Bay area just became a $316-millionaire, if they claim the prize.
The winning ticket was sold at the Jackson Pointe Citgo, 2710 Packerland Drive, in Ashwaubenon. The retailer was announced at a press conference Thursday afternoon, but the winner has not come forward yet.
The Jackson Pointe Citgo will receive $100,000 for selling the winning ticket, Wisconsin Lottery director Cindy Polzin said Thursday at a news conference.
“When I got the call this morning, I wasn’t too frazzled then, but now … my heart’s racing, I’ve got goosebumps all over,” said Mary Willems, general manager of the Jackson Pointe Citgo. “It’s just really great for our store, for our community here. We have a lot of regulars who play the game all the time, and I’m hoping that whoever won this ticket is a regular and that we can share in their joy.”
