MADISON — A Milwaukee
man has claimed a $1 million prize from Saturday's record $590.5 million
Powerball jackpot drawing.
Jason Peck is one of two
Wisconsin $1 million winners from Saturday's drawing. He is the first to
claim his prize.
Peck brought his $1
million winning ticket to the Wisconsin Lottery's Madison headquarters
Tuesday. After taxes he will receive a lump sum payment of $672,500.
He bought his ticket just
before the close of sales Saturday night at a Pick 'N Save in Milwaukee.
Peck told lottery staff he often selects his own numbers, but bought a
quick pick ticket on a whim.
For selling Peck's
winning ticket, Pick 'N Save earns a $20,000 commission.
A $1 million ticket also
was sold in Antigo but that prize has not yet been claimed.
