ROSEVILLE, Minn. (AP) – No Mega Millions tickets sold in Minnesota won the grand prize, but four tickets sold here are worth $250,000 each.

The tickets were sold in Crow Wing, Hennepin, Nobles and Ramsey Counties.

Even without a major winner here, lottery fever still paid off for the state. The frenzy generated $5.2 million, which will be divided among four beneficiaries.

The Minnesota State Lottery says $2.9 million will go to the state’s general fund, which supports state services such as education and transportation.

Another $1.7 million goes to the Environment and Natural Resources trust fund. The fund helps maintain state parks and build state trails.

Two other funds, the Game and Fish Fund and Natural Resources Fund, will each get about $301,000.
