KEWAUNEE, WI (WTAQ) - A woman from northeast Wisconsin is the state’s newest lottery millionaire.

Michelle Grant of Denmark cashed in her $4 million Megabucks ticket Monday. She won the jackpot in Saturday night’s drawing.

Grant chose the one-time cash option of $2.9 million – and she’s getting just under $2 million after taxes.

Grant and lottery officials will hold a news conference Wednesday in Kewaunee, where she bought her ticket. The merchant that sold it, the Lakeshore Lighthouse, is getting an $80,000 commission.

Megabucks is a Wisconsin-only lotto game. Grant was the game’s first jackpot winner since last October.

The odds of winning it are one in 7 million.
