RIPON, WI (WTAQ) - A woman from Ripon has become a millionaire, thanks to the Wisconsin Lottery's first $30 instant scratch game.

Mary Ann Waltenberry won the first of four million-dollar prizes in the "Instant Million" game, which went on sale for the first time last Friday.

Waltenberry will speak to reporters about her good fortune Thursday.

She'll get just over $673,000 after taxes. Waltenberry bought her winning ticket at the Ultimart Citgo West convenience store in Ripon. The store will get a $20,000 commission for selling the prize.
