Last week's Powerball sales in Wisconsin were $21,709,943.
When compared to the previous few months where sales were between $950k-$3.5 million each week, that's about 7-20 times more in sales.
It also closes in on the prior weekly Powerball sales record of $22.3 million for the week of August 25, 2001, when the Powerball jackpot was $295 million.
Wisconsin must contribute 31.29% of its sales to the national jackpot. The rest of the money stays in Wisconsin.
