Mount Pleasant Man Wins $1 Million on Scratch Ticket
Jeff Jackson of Mount Pleasant became a millionaire when he redeemed an Ultimate Millions scratch ticket worth $1 million. Ultimate Millions was a $30 instant scratch game available only in Wisconsin, which had three top prizes of $1 million.
Jackson redeemed the last $1 million prize of the game. The other two top prize winners were Judith Clark of Eau Claire and Karen Perdue of Fort Atkinson.
Jackson bought his ticket at Pick'n Save – 2820 South Green Bay Road in Racine. He will take home more than $673,000 after taxes. Pick'n Save earns 2% of the total prize as a retailer incentive, or $20,000.
On Friday, October 16, the Wisconsin Lottery launched a new $30 instant scratch ticket, Classic Millions, which also offers three top prizes of $1 million each.
The odds of winning the top prize in Ultimate Millions are one in 200,000.
