- A new millionaire lives in Antigo. Today we found out who bought a one million dollar Powerball ticket over the weekend. Ronald Theisen claimed his prize Monday morning. Wisconsin Lottery released his name to us today. We talked to Theisen on the phone, but he didn't want to go on camera.
Theisen bought the ticket at Rem's Midtown Gas Station. People there got their wish. They had hoped for a local winner. "I'm thinking it might be and I hope it is because he comes in at least twice a week and comes in and plays lottery all the time," said Rem's Midtown manager, Carol Vance. "I hope it's somebody from Antigo. You know one of our regulars." Remington Oil Company will get 20 thousand dollars for selling the winning ticket. The manager hopes the money will go back into the station. "I think it's going to improve sales a lot because now the words going to get out," Vance said. "People are going to be coming, especially when we get our new pumps and the new imaging." The winning numbers Theisen picked Saturday are 1, 17, 25, 37 and 44. The Powerball is 20.
