— More than 1,000 lottery numbers and winner details have been released after the Wisconsin Lottery released the results of its lottery Wednesday, giving the public a chance to identify the winners and their families.
The state lottery posted the numbers online for the first time Wednesday morning and posted a second batch of numbers online at 5:30 p.m.
The lottery said the numbers were released to “provide a snapshot of the state lottery system, and provide additional information for individuals interested in the lottery, or those interested in a more in-depth look at the lottery system.”
It said more than 10 million people have already signed up to play the state’s lottery, which has generated about $10 billion for the state.
The lottery said it is taking an “extraordinary step” to protect lottery data from the virus.
