Racine man claims $7.5 million lottery jackpot

RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- A Racine man has come forward to claim a $7.5 million lottery jackpot.

Albert Mohrbacher Jr. had the only winning ticket in the March 27 Megabucks drawing. He turned in his winning ticket Tuesday.

Even though his ticket is worth $7.5 million, he'll take home far less than that. Mohrbacher decided to claim his prize as a lump sum, which works out to $4.2 million. After taxes, that's about $2.8 million.

Wisconsin lottery officials say Mohrbacher is the 68th person to win a million-dollar jackpot.

They say they're glad Mohrbacher stepped forward to claim his prize. Last summer a Powerball ticket worth $1 million was sold in Racine but the winner didn't come forward within six months as required. So in February the prize money reverted back to the state.
