"From the Wisconsin State Lottery- Jeff Jackson of Mount Pleasant became a millionaire when he redeemed an Ultimate Millions scratch ticket worth $1 million. Ultimate Millions was a $30 instant scratch game available only in Wisconsin, which had three top prizes of $1 million. Jackson redeemed the last $1 million prize of the game. The other two top prize winners were Judith Clark of Eau Claire and Karen Perdue of Fort Atkinson.

"Jackson bought his ticket at Pick’n Save – 2820 South Green Bay Road in Racine. He will take home more than $673,000 after taxes. Pick’n Save earns 2% of the total prize as a retailer incentive, or $20,000. On Friday, October 16, the Wisconsin Lottery launched a new $30 instant scratch ticket, Classic Millions, which also offers three top prizes of $1 million each.

"The odds of winning the top prize in Ultimate Millions are 1:200,000"

Sweet. I've always wondered what I would do. At this age, I would stick it in the bank and look forward to a nice retirement.

$30 scratch-off tickets. $30! I used to occasionally spend a buck on the lottery when it got big. I can't imagine spending that much on a scratch-off ticket.
