Someone in Minnesota is 21.6 million dollars richer…we just don’t know who yet.
A Lotto America ticket purchased in Ramsey is worth approximately $21.6 million. The lucky ticket matched all five winning numbers, plus the Star Ball drawn on July 10 (16 – 22 – 32 – 36 – 42 Star Ball – 8) to win the jackpot.
“We are thrilled to have a jackpot winner in Minnesota! The winner should put the ticket somewhere safe, get any advice that they need and then call us to make arrangements to claim their prize.” said Minnesota Lottery Executive Director Adam Prock.
Holiday Stationstore #395, located at 14075 Ramsey Blvd. in Ramsey, sold the winning ticket. This is not the first big win for this lucky store. In addition to this $21.6 million win, this store has sold a $1 million winning ticket and two $50,000 winning tickets. The winner has one year from the date of the drawing to claim the prize and sixty days from the date that they claim the prize to elect either the annuity option or the cash option. The winner will receive the prize within two weeks of making their election. The Lotto America jackpot has been won three times since the game began on Nov. 12, 2017. This is Minnesota’s second Lotto America jackpot win. The Kujava family of Badger shared a $22.8 million jackpot won on March 14, 2018. The Kujava’s winning ticket was purchased at Holiday Stationstore #193, located at 503 – 3rd St. N.W. in Roseau.
