One $40K, three $10K winning Powerball tickets sold in Wisconsin
MADISON (WITI) — Wisconsin had four big winners— one $40,000 winner and three $10,000 winners—all of them in Waukesha County in the Wednesday, August 7 Powerball jackpot drawing, while two tickets in New Jersey and one in Minnesota claimed shares of the $448.4 million jackpot ($258.2 million cash).
Paul White of Ham Lake, Minnesota, is one of the three people who bought a jackpot-winning ticket, the Minnesota State Lottery said Thursday. White, 45, will share the $448 million jackpot. Though he could have chosen $149.4 million over 30 years, he said he chose the cash option of $86 million, which will net him $58.3 million after taxes.
