Even though no one won the $625 million Powerball jackpot on Saturday -- the lottery drawing produced Wisconsin’s largest game win of 2019.

According to the Wisconsin Lottery, a ticket purchased in Racine was one of the nation’s two $2 million prize winners in the March 23 draw.

One lucky ticket holder matched five of six total numbers (24, 25, 52, 60, 66, Powerball of 5).

They also played the "Power Play option" -- which doubled their prize from $1 million to $2 million.

The Wisconsin Lottery says the odds of matching all five numbers, not including the Powerball, are 1 in 11,688,054.

The winning ticket was sold at Speedway (2110 S. Green Bay Rd.) in Racine. The retailer will receive a $40,000 payout based on two percent of the winning prize.

Winners have 180 days from the draw date to claim their prize in person at the Wisconsin Lottery’s Madison office.
