Ripon woman wins Instant Million game

A woman from Ripon has become a millionaire, thanks to the Wisconsin Lottery’s first $30 instant scratch game. Mary Ann Waltenberry won the first of four $1 million prizes in the “Instant Million” game, which went on sale for the first time last Friday.

Waltenberry will speak to reporters about her good fortune tomorrow. She will receive just over $673,000 dollars after taxes.

Waltenberry bought her winning ticket Monday at the Ultimart Citgo West convenience store in Ripon. The store will get a $20,000 dollar commission for selling the prize
