The Last Millionaire Winner of 2019
Millionaire Scratch Ticket Last Top Prize Claimed

MADISON, Wis. Tammy LaPlante from Ixonia, had a fantastic end to her 2019 as she claimed the final top prize from the Millionaire scratch ticket. Tammy was restless one night, so she decided to get up and scratch the instant tickets she had purchased the night prior. As she started scratching the Millionaire ticket, she saw her winning numbers with the amount of $50,000 again, and again, and again! She woke up her partner to confirm what she was seeing and to finish scratching the remainder of the million-dollar ticket.

As Tammy had just retired from her job, this win comes at a special time. The winnings will help offset some of her bills as she waits for her pension to kick in. Tammy is an occasional Lottery player who says she likes to dabble in all Lottery games.

Tammy purchased her winning ticket at Piggly Wiggly Supermarket (1300 Brown St.) in Oconomowoc.

The odds of winning Millionaire's $1,000,000 top prize were 1 in 160,000. There are no top prizes remaining for Millionaire.
