Milwaukee Powerball player has winning ticket
One lucky Wisconsin player is holding a $250,000 winning Powerball ticket from the Wednesday, July 19 Powerball drawing. The player purchased their ticket from the Speedway at 369 East Oklahoma Avenue in Milwaukee. Wednesday's winning Powerball numbers were 50, 51, 59, 61 and 63 with a Powerball of 4. The Power Play number was 5.
The lucky player matched four out of five numbers plus the Powerball to win the ticket holder a $50,000 prize. Because the player purchased the Power Play prize multiplier, the $50,000 prize was automatically multiplied by five, turning the ticket into a $250,000 winner.
Winners at all prize levels have 180 days from the drawing to claim their prizes. Winners of more than $599 must claim their prize at the Lottery's Madison or Milwaukee office or by mail.
The next Powerball drawing is Saturday, July 22. The estimated jackpot is $205 million ($127.6 million cash).
