Retired couple claims $2-million Powerball prize

by

EAU CLAIRE, Wis (WSAU)   A retired Eau Claire man cashed in a $2-million Powerball ticket yesterday. Richard Ingles won the second prize with a Power Play doubler in last Wednesday night’s drawing. The 71-year-old Ingles said it was just another big stroke of luck, after he and his wife Lillian both survived major health scares. Ingles managed to get a liver transplant five years ago, in spite of his age. And his wife went into a coma after having complications from knee replacement surgery. She’s now on the mend.

Ingles received $1.3-million after taxes. The store where he bought his winning ticket, Kwik Trip on Eau Claire’s MacArthur Avenue, is getting a $40,000 commission.

Nobody won last night’s Powerball jackpot, so it goes up to $80-million for Saturday. One Wisconsin player won $10,000 by matching four regular numbers plus the Powerball. About $94,000 players in the state won something.
