MADISON (WITI) — On Monday, Richard McClain went home after his trip to the convenience store, scratched his lottery ticket, and almost fainted. He couldn’t believe he was the second winner of Wisconsin’s new Instant Million game, launched less than three weeks ago.

Instant Million is Wisconsin’s first $30 instant scratch ticket with four (make that now two) $1 million instant prizes.

Richard bought his ticket at the National Quick Food Mart at 5631 West National in Milwaukee. He will take home $673,507.50 after taxes.

For selling the $1 million winning ticket, National Quick Food Mart earns a $20,000 incentive. Lottery retailers who sell winning tickets with prizes of $600 or more earn the equivalent of 2% of the prize.

    Very many big lottery winners report that they used a quick pick (lucky dip). Maybe there’s nothing really much in it, but quick picks certainly do seem to be more lucky. To try to take advantage of this, I have my own little just-for-fun page which generates personal quick pick numbers. As I say, it is only for fun, but you never know your luck! Look out for VillaLibra Lucky Numbers if you want to see if you can locate it.
