On Tuesday, March 22, 2022, Joseph Bednarek’s wife sent him out for hot dogs and other groceries. Joseph went to Pick ‘N Save, 55 W. Pioneer Rd., Fond du Lac.

Joseph said after checking out, he saw the high Badger 5 jackpot on the Lottery sign and bought $10 worth of tickets.

He checked his numbers the next day and realized he had gone on a very lucky grocery run as he held the jackpot-winning ticket.

Bednarek is retired and plans to use the winnings to complete house repairs and add to savings.
