One lucky Wisconsinite is holding a $250,000 winning Powerball ticket from the Wednesday, July 19 Powerball drawing.

The player purchased their ticket from the Speedway at 369 East Oklahoma Ave. in Milwaukee. Wednesday's winning Powerball numbers were 50, 51, 59, 61 and 63 with a Powerball of 4. The Power Play number was 5.

The player matched four out of five numbers plus the Powerball to win the ticket holder a $50,000 prize.

Because the player purchased the Power Play prize multiplier, the $50,000 prize was automatically multiplied by five, turning the ticket into a $250,000 winner.

Winners at all prize levels have 180 days from the drawing to claim their prizes.

The next Powerball drawing is Saturday, July 22. The estimated jackpot is $205 million ($127.6 million cash).
