Wisconsin’s newest millionaire says he doesn’t thing the money will change him.
Marinette resident Doug Miron was obviously excited as he accepted the ceremonial $31.4 million check from lottery officials Monday.
Miron, a longtime Powerball Player, says he was shocked to see he had the winning numbers for last week’s jackpot. He’s played those numbers for a “long time” but still couldn’t believe they came up.
Miron bought his winning Powerball ticket at the City Limits BP on Highway 180.
He has decided to take the lump-sum option, which means after taxes he should receive over $11 million. Miron says one of the first things he may do with his winnings is buy a new truck.
