FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
$50,000 Powerball Win in Kenosha
Meijer Gas Station records another big win in 2024

Kenosha 50K Win

Madison, Wis. --  The weather isn't the only thing heating up this month. A winning $50,000 Powerball ticket was sold at Meijer Gas Station on 7735 Green Bay Rd. in Kenosha for the Wednesday, April 10, 2024, drawing. It is the seventh time since April 1, that a winning Powerball ticket of $50,000 or more was sold at a Wisconsin retailer. The winning ticket matched four of five numbers (6-7-12-24-36) and the Powerball (15).

"It's great for the store to sell another big winner," said Christina Wilks, lead employee at Meijer Gas Station. "We sold a Badger 5 jackpot a few months ago, so I think we're a pretty lucky store."

For the January 8, 2024, Badger 5 drawing, a winning $151,000 Badger 5 jackpot ticket was sold to a Meijer customer.

Wisconsin Lottery retailers who sell winning tickets over $599 receive a two percent Retailer Performance Winning Ticket Incentive, up to $100,000.

Players have 180 days from the draw date to claim their winnings. Information on how to claim a prize is available at wilottery.com. Players can also check their tickets using the Wisconsin Lottery mobile app, available on the App Store or Google Play.
