Wisconsin Man Wins $100,000 Lottery Prize; Lottery Jackpots Continue to Grow

Little Rock, Ark.

A hardware store run to the Natural State has become a $100,000 lottery prize for a Wisconsin man. Kenneth Wegener recently claimed his prize at the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) Claim Center.

He purchased the winning Powerball® Quick Pick ticket at White Oak Station MOARK #31, 2 Parkwood Drive in Eureka Springs. The winning numbers for the April 10 draw were 9, 10, 36, 46 and 52.

Wegener matched four white balls and the Powerball number 14. However, because he purchased the $1 Power Play® option, which was 2 for that drawing, he doubled his prize to $100,000.

Wegener and his wife enjoy staying in Missouri during this time of year. On Monday, he realized he needed some bolts for a project, so he took a quick trip to the hardware store about 15 minutes from the couple’s location.  

“On my way to the store, I stopped at the station to buy us some lottery tickets,” Wegener said. “I play the lottery daily and always pay the extra $1 to activate the Power Play for a chance to increase my non-jackpot prizes,” he added. 

Wegener is retired and plans to pay bills with his winnings. 

Tonight, the Powerball jackpot stands at $202 million, and the Natural State Jackpot is up to $110,000. The LOTTO jackpot – that is still waiting on its first jackpot winner – has climbed to $2.149 million also for tonight. The Mega Millions jackpot has surged to $476 million for Friday night’s drawing.

To celebrate the LOTTO jackpot, ASL will host an activation event today from 4 to 6 p.m. at Circle K, 11821 Colonel Glenn Road in Little Rock, where the public can purchase LOTTO tickets and play a game to win lottery swag.
