This is the 16th Powerball jackpot ticket sold in Wisconsin since the game was introduced in April of 1992.
This will be the second largest prize awarded to a Wisconsin winner. The largest was a ticket worth $208.8 million sold in August of 2006 to a group of 100 individuals who called themselves the Miracle 100. That ticket was sold at Ma and Pa Grocery in Fond du Lac.
The last Powerball jackpot winner from Wisconsin was Doug Miron of Marinette. He won $31.4 million on October 14, 2009 on a ticket he purchased at City Limits in Marinette.
