About the Wisconsin Lottery
The Wisconsin State Lottery is an entity administered by the state's Department of Revenue. It was originally implemented in 1988 after the state senate and assembly authorized its creation. However, it isn’t the first modern lotto to operate in the Badger State.
Years before the first Wisconsin Lottery numbers were drawn, the Oneida Nation organized its own lotto variant. This simple pick-6-from-36 jackpot game was even televised in Green Bay.
Revenues from the lottery in Wisconsin are allocated as follows:
- 56% for Wisconsin Lottery winners
- 30% for property tax credits
- 6% for retailers
- 6% in costs
Apart from Wisconsin Lottery scratch tickets, there are also several multi-jurisdictional games such as Powerball (since 1992) and Mega Millions (since 2010). However, there’s currently no Wisconsin Lottery Lucky for Life game.
Wisconsin Lottery FAQ
One of the largest jackpots in the history of American lotteries went to a West Allis, WI resident. In March 2019, a Wisconsin Lottery Powerball ticket purchased in New Berlin hit a jackpot worth $768.4 million. It's the third largest of its kind, so far.
The winner, 24-year-old Manuel Franco, opted for the cash prize over the annuity. In the end, he wound up with an impressive $477 million cash jackpot.
Results of Wisconsin Lottery drawings were originally broadcast in a special TV show, called The Money Game. Several local stations aired it, including WISN Channel 12, WKOW Channel 27, WBAY Channel 2, WXOW Channel 19, WQOW Channel 18, WAOW Channel 9, WYOW Channel 34, and KBJR Channel 6.
However, since 2002, televised Wisconsin Lottery results were discontinued as a cost-cutting measure. Nonetheless, you can still catch the Wisconsin Lottery winning numbers during the late-night newscast of many local stations. They’re also featured in the paper, on the official website, and per the Wisconsin Lottery app.
Your odds of winning the WSL depend on the games you choose to play. The Pick 3 game has odds to win the top prize of 1 in 1,000. For Pick 4, the odds are 1 in 10,000.

As for multi-state games, the Powerball is drawn Wednesdays and Saturdays, at 9:59 PM. Mega Millions is drawn on Tuesdays and Fridays, at 10 PM.
The Wisconsin Lottery Second Chance promotion is a special program available on a seasonal basis. Players can mail in their non-winning instant or draw game tickets.
