One of Wisconsin Rapids’ own is a six-figure lottery winner.
The lucky winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, won the second top prize of $100,000 playing the Club Crossword scratch game. The winning ticket was purchased at the AmeriStore gas station, located at 211 8th St. South.
According to a press release by the Wisconsin Lottery, “retailers who sell winning tickets over $599 receive an incentive of 2 percent of the winning ticket amount up to $100,000.”
Out of three $100,000 top prizes in the Club Crossword scratch game, one prize still remains open to another lucky winner. A Crossword Club ticket can be purchased for just $10.
