$1 million Powerball ticket winner in Minnesota

| No Comments

Seven Powerball tickets sold in Minnesota yielded large winnings for their purchasers, including one for $1 million, news sources report.

One ticket sold in Winona County matched all five numbers in the Nov. 28 drawing, but not the Powerball. Five numbers matched yields a prize of $1 million, the Associated Press reported.

The prize has not yet been claimed. The winner has not yet come forward, and the person's identity and purchase location have not been released, Minnesota Lottery spokesperson Debbie Hoffmann told the La Crosse Tribune Thursday morning.

Local laws give lottery participants up to a year to come forward, but "based on our history they don't generally wait that long," Hoffmann told the La Crosse Tribune.
Six other tickets had four of the five numbers correct and the Powerball. These tickets are each worth $10,000, the Associated Press reported.

Two tickets matching all six numbers and the Powerball for the record-breaking $587.5 million jackpot were sold in Arizona and Missouri. The grand-prize winners have not yet been identified, the La Crosse Tribune reported.
