Someone is about to have the best end to a year ever. According to The Minnesota Lottery, a winning ticket was sold in Hermantown.

That's right - the winner bought the ticket at Hermantown General Store. The winning ticket matched all five numbers: 4, 14, 23, 31 and 34.

According to local media reports, the ticket was bought on Monday night (December 16th). The winning ticket was for the Gopher 5 drawing and is worth a cool $1,606,134 dollars.

As of right now, the winner of the big ticket has not come forward. Hermantown General Store will also come out a winner, snagging about five grand for selling the winning ticket.

Hermantown General Store is located at 5105 Morris Thomas Road. If I ever buy a lottery ticket, I know where i'm going!

This isn't the first time a Northland resident has cashed in on some big money. In February of this year, a man from Superior won one million dollars after scoring a winning Powerball ticket.

If you tried your hand at winning and haven't come out on top just yet, you're not alone. There are a lot of things that are more likely to happen to you than winning the lottery. Sigh.
