Steven Allen, a retired man from De Soto in Wisconsin is going to enjoy a much more financially cushioned retirement after winning a $250,000 prize with the Wisconsin Lottery! Allen, told the story of how he was craving pizza, specifically Rocky Rococo’s pizza so he decided to pick one up. On his way there, he stopped off at Festival Foods which is located at 30 Copeland Ave, La Crosse and bought a number of Lotto and scratchers tickets at the lottery machine in there. He usually has a set of numbers he plays, but on this occasion, he went for the Quick Pick option and thank goodness that he did as he wouldn’t have won otherwise. Allen used the Wisconsin website to check his tickets, and noticed that the number 17, 18 and 20 kept coming up and matching which made him do a double-take in shock. He says it still hasn’t sunk in for him, even after claiming this prize at the lottery headquarters. The winning number on Allen’s ticket were: 17, 18, 20, 26, 27 and 31 for the drawing at the end of January. Allen is very pleased, and says he will use the money to improve his financial situation and that he will no longer have to rely on his family for help as much as he did prior. The retailer is also a winner, and will receive a $7,000 bonus just for selling the winning ticket.
