A 26-year-old West Allis woman has come forward to claim her $1 million winning Powerball ticket purchased at a Brookfield grocery store.
Christy Stanczak had all five numbers but not the Powerball in Saturday night's drawing with a $336 million jackpot. After taxes, she would earn $672,000, state lottery officials said Tuesday.
The $1 million ticket was sold at the Brookfield Pick 'n Save at 15170 W. Greenfield Ave. The winning numbers were 1, 10, 37, 52 and 57, and Powerball was 11.
Matching the five numbers without the Powerball previously would have been worth $200,000. But when Powerball became a $2 game last month, such tickets now are worth $1 million.
Patch media partner Fox6now.com reporter Justin Williams filed this video report from the Brookfield Pick 'n Save.
A winning ticket in Rhode Island matched all five plus the Powerball Saturday night to claim the $336 million dollar jackpot.
Stanczak must claim the prize at the Lottery's headquarters in Madison within 180 days of Saturday's drawing. The Powerball jackpot returns to $40 million for Wednesday's drawing.
Though a mere pittance compared to a $1 million payout, two other Brookfield Roundy's groceries have won recent five-figure prizes. Bill Smalls of Brookfield won $10,000 in December with winning scratch-off football tickets at Metro Market, 17630 W. Blue Mound Rd., and a Brookfield woman won a 60-inch, high-definition, 3D television worth $5,000 for a winning scratch-off at the Ruby Isle Pick 'n Save, 2205 N. Calhoun Rd in Brookfield.
