Big Powerball winner cannot remain anonymous in Wisconsin

NEW BERLIN, Wis. - Wisconsin Lottery officials say the winner or winners of the nation's third-largest lottery jackpot have not yet come forward.

The winning ticket in Wednesday's $768 million Powerball ticket was sold in suburban Milwaukee.

Wisconsin lottery officials have scheduled an 11 a.m. news conference, but say they haven't yet heard from the winner. State law gives the ticket holder 180 days to step forward.

By law, the winner or winners must be publicly identified.

Lottery officials say the retailer that sold the ticket is in New Berlin. The retailer hasn't yet been identified but will get a $100,000 payout for selling the winning ticket.
