“We are thrilled to have a jackpot winner in Minnesota,” said Minnesota Lottery Executive Director Adam Prock outside the winning store.
Some lucky winner is sitting on a $21 million jackpot.
They purchased a Lotto America ticket in Ramsey, a town located about 30 miles northwest of Minneapolis, and have yet to come forward to claim their prize.
Holiday Stationstore sold the winning ticket, but it wasn’t the first big win for this lucky convenience 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 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!” said Minnesota Lottery Executive Director Adam Prock.
“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.”
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 $21.6 million estimated annuity jackpot would be paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years. Or the winner could take $14.2 million as an estimated cash option which would be paid as a lump-sum. The winner would receive approximately $9.8 million after state and federal required tax withholdings.
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.
