SHEBOYGAN -- The Megabucks drawing on Wednesday, Jan. 16 produced the game’s first win of 2019 and a $5.9 million jackpot. One lucky ticket holder will collect the largest prize since 2015.
The winning ticket, with numbers 1, 5, 28, 29, 37, and 44 was sold at the Kwik Trip located on 625 South Taylor Drive in Sheboygan. As the winning retailer, the store will receive an incentive of $100,000 based on the prize amount.
