I read this was the biggest PB win for Wisconsin since 1998 when a bartender from Chicago drove to Wisconsin to buy tickets for his customers.  As I remembered, one of his customers won and assured him he would be well rewarded.  After the winner got with his kids and lawyers and claimed the money with his kids, he offered the bartender $10K and the bartender sued claiming he was expecting something closer to $1M.  I never did hear how the court ruled.

I hope this winner doesn't have a friends that want to split his winnings for him.

    That is the second win for WI in the last two years.  So far they have had one winner per year for the last two years.  I hope that OR is going to be the next winner.-weshar75

      Unless he had something in writing, how can anyone in their right mind expect more ?

      10G is a helluva lot better than ZILCH, after all, it appears he had none of his own money in it.

      Just another example of a lousy person crying to the legal system, he should have known this would happen IF a client won.

      He should have had a written a contract for all to sign stating he was entitled to X dollars or X percent for any amount over X dollars

      won by any of the folks he was buying tickets for, at least he would have had a better chance of getting something more substantial OUT of court.

        I think it goes in streaks - PA had 4 winners in one year I think, thendidn't have any for a couple of years, all states are kinda like that way now.

          I Agree!    Also isn't $10k the max at that time someone could give another without taxes kicking in???

          Good luck to everyone!
