A Milwaukee man has claimed his $2 million Powerball prize from the Wisconsin Lottery.
Joe White bought a Powerball ticket for the May 16th drawing and added the multiplier feature. So when his ticket matched all five regular numbers, his $1 million prize was doubled.
White gets $1,345,000 after taxes are taken out. He bought his ticket at Vagyon Enterprises on Milwaukee's south side. The company earns a $40,000 commission.
White won his prize on the same night Jeannette Sroka of Malone won $1 million. She claimed her prize last week.
