Last weekend was a very profitable one for two Wisconsin lottery players, who combined to win $500,000.

The half a million dollars in winnings was accomplished by playing two different lottery games, with one winner scoring $150,000 Saturday and then another player winning $350,000.

$150,000 Wisconsin Powerball Winner Saturday

The first winner scored $150,000 with Saturday's Powerball drawing. The winning numbers on Saturday, February 17 were 6-28-59-62-69, with the Powerball of 21.

According to the Wisconsin Lottery, the $150,000 winning ticket was purchased at the Kwik Trip located at 124 W. McCoy Blvd. in Tomah.  The winner matched 4 of 5 numbers plus the Powerball number, which guarantees 50,000.

However, the player added the optional $1 Power Play to their Powerball ticket, so the $50,000 win became $150,000 because the PowerPlay multiplier was 3X.

$350,000 Winning SuperCash! Ticket

Before last weekend would end, an even bigger Wisconsin Lottery prize would be won. On Sunday, February 18, a player won $350,000 playing the SuperCash game.

If you're unfamiliar with SuperCash!, it's similar to Powerball in that it involves having a ticket with winning numbers, with a $350,000 jackpot up for grabs for players who have all 6 winning numbers.

However, there are some differences from Powerball:

  1. Players choose six different numbers from 1 to 39. Minimum play is two panels for $1.
  2. Place wagers by asking for a QUICK PICK or by using the SuperCash! play slip. Playslips are available at Wisconsin Lottery retailers.
  3. Choose how many draws to play. Each set of two plays cost $1 per draw. SuperCash! can be played up to 7 draws (7 days) in advance.

On Sunday, the winning numbers were 6-12-18-24-30-33. Only one person had all 6 winning numbers, so they won the entire $350,000 jackpot.

That winning ticket was purchased at Wittlin's Complete Car Care Food Mart, located at N92W17387 Appleton Avenue in Menomonee Falls.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
