Wisconsin Man Claims $29.1 Million Powerball Jackpot!

As an over-the-road truck driver for almost 25 years
Steve Peot of Green Bay never imagined he would amass
more money than miles. So count him as one very
surprised Powerball jackpot winner.

“This really is unbelievable,” Peot said. Peot, 45,
presented the Wisconsin Lottery with the only winning
ticket from the September 5th $29.1 million Powerball
drawing. He purchased his winner at the Superstore in
De Pere. “I don't play that often,” he said.
“Sometimes when the jackpots are really up there.”

So what prompted him to go for a $5 quick pick ticket
for last Wednesday's comparatively small $29.1
million? “I don't know,” he admitted. “It was just on
a whim.” Peot chose the jackpot's cash option lump sum
payment of $13.7 million. Peot says he's not sure
what he's going to do with the money. “Just keep on
keepin' on, I guess.” Peot is married with two teenage
children and another child on the way. He says he
intends to continue living in Green Bay.
