Someone in wisconsin just got a lot richer.
The winning ticket for the powerball jackpot was sold at a speedway in new berlin.
Amy reid joins us now to show us what this means for the whole state.
This ticket is worth more than 768 million dollars.
The winner can choose if they want to take it in payments or get the whole thing in cash, though they do loose about 3 hundred million if they choose that.
In addition to this one person, the store that sold the ticket, the speedway on beloit road in new berlin, gets 100 thousand dollars.
Plus it provides some property tax relief to wisconsin residents and puts 38 million in the wisconsin department of revenue bank.
As for who this lucky winner is... well, we don't know.
((( , " 3:36 we don't know who the winner is yet but we certainly do congratulate them.
We ask them to please sign your ticket.
That is the most important thing they can do right now.
Please sign your ticket.
Take ownership of that ticket.
Get your affairs in order.
You have 180 days to claim your ticket here in madison.

Wisconsin law doesn't allow winners to remain anonymous.
And while that's not unique, not every state is like this.
Tonight at ten, we'll share with you why the wisconsin lottery runs this way.
