Minnesota Lottery Announces $1 Million Powerball Ticket Sold In Duluth
Monday night was a very lucky night for someone in the Duluth area! Going into the October 11 Powerball drawing, the jackpot was $401 million and while nobody claimed the jackpot, there was a $1 million winning ticket sold in Duluth.
Monday's winning Powerball numbers were 3, 6, 11, 17, 22 and the Powerball 11. In order to win $1 million, you have to successfully pick the first 5 numbers and miss the Powerball number. Basically, you're one Powerball number away from winning the jackpot.
The Minnesota State Lottery has announced that's just what someone in the Duluth area did Monday night. Now the big question is, who was it?
Unless the winner decides to come forward publicly, we may never know. Recently, regulation changes took place in order to protect lottery winners who win over $10,000. Big money winners can become targets for scammers and fraud, so the the Minnesota Lottery will not divulge their name unless they first agree to it.
The $1 million winning ticket was purchased at the Holiday Station Store located at 5699 Miller Truck Highway in Duluth, which is in the Pike Lake area.
If you recently purchased a Powerball ticket at that Holiday Station Store, you'll want to want to use the handy online Minnesota Lottery number checker to verify if you're Minnesota's newest millionaire.
Since nobody claimed the $401 million Powerball Grand Prize on October 10, the next Powerball jackpot has grown to $420 million. That drawing is Wednesday, October 12.
If you want to take a shot at all the dough, remember the cutoff to purchase your Powerball tickets is 9:00 p.m. on the days of the drawings, which are Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
