There no big winners, but Wisconsin was not without it’s share of Powerball action. Thirteen tickets sold in Wisconsin won the Powerball third-prize of $50,000 in Wednesday night’s drawing.
Wisconsin Lottery spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis said ticket holders will have 180 days to cash in, either in Madison or Milwaukee. They’ll collect about $34,000 after state and federal taxes.
In a week and-a-half, more than $41 million in Powerball tickets were sold here, and a portion of that goes to property tax relief.
The big winners were in California, Florida and Tennessee with those three tickets splitting $1.5 billion.
