    MADISON, Wis. - This couple won't have to argue about how to spend their lottery winnings. That's because the Mount Horeb husband and wife each won their own $350,000 jackpots in this weekend's SuperCash state lottery.

    Lottery officials said Verlyn Adamson bought his winning ticket at a Mineral Point gas station and his wife Judith bought hers from a convenience store in Barnevald.

    Verlyn Adamson is an accountant who says he's a big fan of math puzzles. He claims he developed a secret formula that has helped him make money in the lottery over the last 20 years, although he says his winnings have been small compared to this jackpot.

    He said his wife, who is his boss at work, had asked if she could play the same numbers he played.

    The winning numbers were 6, 10, 11, 19, 21 and 49.
  2. Hah. Nice.

    I went to college 30 min outside of there.

    Kind of a hick town.
  3. I know what would happen if my wife and I each won the lottery. She'd ask me to pay her back for the money I took from her purse when she was sleeping all these years. Me being the good guy will oblige because, she can't stay awake for ever.
