BLOOMER, Wis. (WEAU)-- A Bloomer woman is the lucky winner of a $74,000 jackpot after winning the Badger 5.
Lorie Suhr matched all five numbers of the winning ticket during Monday night's drawing. The ticket was sold at Price Rite, which is on Main Street in Bloomer. On Tuesday, she and her husband went to Madison to collect their big check.
Lorie says she thought she hit it big on Sunday when the couple matched four out of the five numbers for the drawing to win $50. The next day she says she bought another ticket and was shocked when luck struck twice and the couple hit the $74,000 jackpot.
