About the Wisconsin Lottery
The first tickets sold in an official and legal lottery in Wisconsin were dedicated to instant games Wisconsin Red and Match 3 in 1988. But it wasn’t the very beginning of lottery-related gambling within the borders of Wisconsin. The Oneida tribe was running a bunch of games including jackpot lotto and some of them are available up till now. Wisconsin Big Green was the game that initiated lotteries here and became a hit instantly.
Several decades later, people are offered more games as the selection is really rich now. Five exclusively-available lotteries are immensely popular and one of them is Megabucks. Its full name reads Wisconsin Very Own Megabucks and was introduced in 1992. Taking into consideration all the games in which you can win, we can undoubtedly say your winning chances are quite big. To prove it, just think of one of the Megabucks winner who was lucky enough to gain over $20 million in 2001. And he has bought only one ticket back then!
Apart from the single-state games, gamblers in the state of Wisconsin are provided with an opportunity to play multi-state lotteries. Since its launch in 1992, Powerball is enjoying the biggest popularity, even when we consider all the games available. It’s no wonder since it produced many winners of huge jackpots within years. In 2006 an incredible amount of over $200 million was won. But in that case, ticket as well as the prize itself was divided into 100 parts. It’s all because hundred cheese factory workers purchased it. Finally, after a relatively long wait, Wisconsin Mega Millions was added a few years ago, in 2010. At that time, 21 other states took a similar step.
