ROSEVILLE – Stearns County has a new millionaire.

Tickets worth $1 million were sold in Stearns County and in Beltrami County and were drawn yesterday (Wednesday) in the Minnesota State Lottery’s Millionaire Raffle drawing.

Executive Director Ed Van Petten says one of the winning $1 million tickets sold last year wasn’t turned-in for several months.

Van Petten says taxes on the $1 million prize are at 32 1/2 percent.  That means the winner will take home $677,500.

State law requires that the winner’s name and hometown be made public.

Also, five tickets were drawn for $100,000 each – one of those tickets was sold in Morrison County, and two were sold in Wright County.

Winners of the $1 million, and $100,000 prizes must claim their prize in person at the Lottery’s headquarters in Roseville.

Players have until January 2nd of next year to claim their prize.

This is the 8th year of the Minnesota Millionaire Raffle.  There was a limit of 600,000 tickets sold.
