WIND LAKE — A Wind Lake resident is celebrating a $500,000 jackpot in the Wisconsin Lottery.

Bobbi Mangan, a regular lottery player, won a big payoff in the $30 Super Mega Star Crossword game.

She bought her winning ticket at GP 4 Petroleum LLC, 7812 S. Loomis Road, Wind Lake. The store will receive a $10,000 prize for selling the ticket.

You know it's spring when you see the ice melting over the water in Lake Miltona, Minnesota, on March 30. The wind helped the narrow strip of the open water grow.

Officials said Mangan at first thought she had won only $25,000 with nine winning words in the scratch-off Crossword game. She had overlooked a 10th winning word, which made her jackpot $500,000.

She was thrilled with her bigger-than-expected prize.

“It pays to play,” she said.

The odds of winning the $500,000 jackpot in Super Mega Star Crossword are one in 106,667. There are no top prizes remaining in the game.

The odds of winning the $25,000 second prize are one in 160,000.
