$2 Million Powerball Ticket Sold In Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS -- While someone in neighboring Wisconsin hit the top Powerball jackpot, a ticket sold in Minnesota will make someone a new millionaire.
The ticket that matched all five white balls drawn Wednesday night, but missed the Powerball, is good for $2 million. That's because the player chose the Power Play option to double the prize for those numbers. Lottery officials say that ticket was sold at a Holiday Station Store in Stillwater.
Three tickets were sold in Minnesota each worth $50,000. They were sold at the Casey's General Store in Paynesville, the Casey's General Store in Zumbrota, and the Kwik Trip Store in Savage.
The ticket that won the $768 million jackpot was sold in the Milwaukee suburb of New Berlin. State law says the winner in Wisconsin has 180 days to claim the prize and cannot remain anonymous.
