Milwaukeean Claims $156 Million Powerball Jackpot From March

7/29/17 – A Milwaukeean has claimed a $156-million Powerball jackpot from March 22. The Wisconsin Lottery said Friday that Mai Xiong took the cash option of $93-million, instead of taking the whole jackpot in about 30 annual installments. It’s the second largest Powerball jackpot ever won in Wisconsin, eclipsed only by the $209-million prize won by about 100 people in Fond du Lac in 2006. Xiong is the Badger State’s first Powerball jackpot winner since October of 2009. The winning ticket was purchased at the Pewaukee Corner Pump which receives $100,000 from the state lottery for selling it.
