According to the WI Lottery, Badger 5 is a $1 daily lotto game with jackpots that start at $10,000 and grow a minimum of $1,000 a day until they are won. Players win the rolling jackpot by matching their five numbers to the five winning numbers drawn each night.
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.
