Powerball Sales Benefit All Wisconsin Residents

By  | 

A winning Powerball ticket will make you $365 million richer this weekend. But, even if you don't win, the huge jackpot is good news for property taxpayers in Wisconsin.
The state lottery spokeswoman says the record-breaking prize is raising sales for Powerball tickets and also for other state lottery games.
About a third of the state lottery's revenue goes to property tax relief.
Nearly $5.5 million worth of Powerball tickets were sold in Wisconsin for last Wednesday's drawing.
That total could double for Saturday.
