SPRING VALLEY, WI – There was a $50,000 Powerball ticket sold at the Spring Valley Team Oil Travel Center according to Wisconsin Lottery Communications in an email received by this reporter on the afternoon of Friday, September 29.

This was confirmed by talking with a cashier at Team Oil on Friday afternoon who said they had also been notified of selling the winning $50,000 ticket. They have put up a bright starburst sign between the two cash registers in the convenience store, gas station announcing the sale of the winning tick.

This casher also said that the winner has not come forward yet.

“I hope it is someone local!” she said.

Wisconsin has two lucky players from the Wednesday, September 27 Powerball drawing.  One from a ticket sold in Spring Valley and other one sold in Menomonie, Wisconsin. Each player matched four out of five numbers plus the Powerball, which earns them the $50,000 prize. The odds of winning the $50,000 prize are 1:913,130.

Winners at all prize levels have 180 days from Wednesday's drawing to claim their prizes. 

The winning numbers from Wednesday, September 27 drawing were 8, 10, 21, 23, and 25.  The Powerball was 22 and the Power Play number was 3.  The winning tickets from Wednesday's drawing were sold at:

  • Team Oil at W2555 State Road 29 in Spring Valley, Wisconsin
  • Kwik Trip at 2008 Stout Road in Menomonie, Wisconsin

Since there was not a Powerball jackpot winner Wednesday night, the jackpot continues to grow.  The Powerball jackpot for Saturday night's drawing is estimated at $80 million ($50.6 million cash).

While the jackpot gets the most attention, there are other prizes to be won in Powerball.  Prizes range from $4 for matching just the Powerball to $1 million for matching all five numbers (but not the Powerball).  For an extra $1 per play, you can choose Power Play to increase your non-jackpot winnings, which will be multiplied by the drawing's Power Play number.  For example, if your prize is $50,000 and the Power Play number is 5, you win $250,000 just by adding Power Play.  The $1 million prize automatically becomes $2 million with Power Play.

Congratulations to the two $50,000 winners who bought their winning tickets Wednesday, September 27, 2017 in Spring Valley and Menomonie, Wisconsin!
