SHEBOYGAN — A Sheboygan man has claimed the $5.9 million Megabucks jackpot, 10 days before the ticket would have expired.

The Wisconsin Lottery says Matthew Neal, of Sheboygan, came forward with the winning lottery ticket from the January 16 drawing.

The $5.9 million jackpot is the largest Megabucks prize won since 2015.

The odds of winning the Megabucks jackpot are 1 in 6,991,908.
