Winning lottery tickets sold in Sun Prairie, Butler

A Mount Horeb man matched all six numbers in the Wisconsin Lottery SuperCash game to win three $350,000 prizes by using a mathematical equation, according to a statement from the man’s attorney.

Wisconsin Lottery said Verlyn Adamson bought the tickets at Kwik Trip on West Mineral Point Road in Verona, Kwik Trip on Springdale Street in Mount Horeb and Cenex on Highway 18/151 in Mount Horeb.

Adamson’s winning tickets matched all six numbers of 3, 10, 15, 23, 26 and 34.

After taxes, Adamson received a payment of $707,175. Each store earned a $7,000 retailer incentive for selling the winning ticket.

Adamson’s attorney said the mathematical equation used to pick the numbers is a trade secret, and they are exploring patent protection.

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 a total of $1,400,000 on four different tickets.
