Did You Know?


If the overall odds on a ticket are 1:10, why didn't I win when I bought ten tickets?


The odds are calculated by taking the total number of tickets printed divided by the total number of prizes available. The prizes' location in the game are determined by random, computer generated formulas. A string of ten tickets may not produce a winner, but another string of ten tickets may produce several winners.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- Buying lottery tickets every day for 26 years has finally paid off for a Sheboygan man.

Fifty-two-year-old Dave Resnick has claimed a $1 million Wisconsin Lottery Powerball prize. After taxes, he'll keep $673,500 in prize money.

A Sheboygan newspaper reports Resnick told a news conference Monday that he kept saying he'd get lucky one of these days - and he got lucky.

Resnick matched the first five numbers in Wednesday's drawing to win the $1 million prize. He plans to help put his daughter through college.

The news conference was held at a Sheboygan Q Mart where Resnick bought his winning ticket. It was the second time in a month that a Q Mart in Sheboygan County sold a winning $1 million Powerball ticket. The first was in Kohler.
