If you bought a Powerball ticket in Pewaukee, now would be the time to check your numbers.

Wisconsin Lottery officials have confirmed that a ticket that hit Wednesday's $155,200,000 Powerball jackpot was sold in the Wisconsin city. 

The winning numbers were 2-9-27-29-42 Powerball 9 Power Play 2x.

The jackpot ticket is worth $155.2 million when paid out as an annuity, or $93.1 million as a lump sum cash payment.

According to a news release from the Wisconsin Lottery, the ticket was sold at Pewaukee Corner Pump at 1194 West Capitol Drive.

Joe McMahon, the manager of store, said he hasn't sold a ticket like this one before. 

"It's the biggest one I've ever sold. I think the biggest before that was about four grand so," McMahon said. 

Customers at the store like Mike Schemberger day dreamed about what they would do with the money. 

"I'd buy a new car, a new house. Pay off my parents stuff and take care of my family," he said. 

The retailer will receive an incentive of 2 percent of the winning ticket amount, up to $100,000.
