Last week, the Wisconsin Lottery announced that three SuperCash! winning tickets had been sold in Dane County.
Amazingly, all three winning lottery tickets were purchased by the same person from three different stores.
But the real jaw-dropping part? He's done this before.
Verlyn Adamson of Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, is the lucky winner of all three top prizes from the Monday, January 26 SuperCash! daily lotto game. His winning tickets matched all six numbers of 3, 10, 15, 23, 26, and 34.
Adamson purchased his lucky tickets at three different locations:
After taxes, Adamson received a payment of $707,175.39.
This is the second time that Adamson has won multiple top prizes of $350,000 playing SuperCash! The last time this happened was in August 2008 when he won on four different tickets, pocketing $995,000 after taxes.
(See Wisconsin couple win in lottery -- again!, Lottery Post, Aug. 22, 2008.)
Adamson's attorney said in a statement that a mathematical equation was used to pick the numbers, and they are exploring patent protection for the trade secret.
Each store Adamson purchased a winning ticket from receives a $7,000 retailer incentive (or 2% of the total prize won on the ticket purchased).
SuperCash! is a daily lotto game played only in Wisconsin. Players try to match the six randomly drawn winning numbers drawn each night from a field of 39 numbers for a chance to win prizes of $1, $30, $500, and the top prize of $350,000. Players can also select the doubler feature at no additional cost. When the doubler is drawn, every prize doubles (excluding the top prize).
