A Chippewa Falls woman won a top prize of $200,000 with a scratch game ticket, the Wisconsin Lottery said Wednesday.

Sharon Connell bought the Big Money ticket from Kwik Trip, 503 E. Grand Ave., Chippewa Falls.

The $200,000 prize was the last top prize available in the scratch off game. The odds of winning that prize was one in 312,000 chances.

Kwik Trip is eligible to receive an incentive of 2 percent, up to $100,000, for selling the winning ticket.

The lottery did not say how much of Connell's $200,000 prize will be taken up by taxes.
