$1 Million Dollar Winning Powerball Ticket Sold In Carlton
One Minnesotan had quite the weekend - even if they don't know it quite yet!
According to local reports, a Powerball ticket worth a hefty $1 million dollars was sold to a customer at the Minit Mart in Carlton, Minnesota on Saturday.
The ticket was sold over the weekend in store. The Minnesota Lottery says the winner must bring his or her ticket to lottery headquarters, which is located in Roseville near the Twin Cities, to claim their big prize. So far, no one has come forward just yet.
This is great news for the shopper AND the store. The business gets a bonus, worth 5-grand, for selling the lucky ticket once the winner comes forward.
Wondering about those winning numbers? 3-6-9-17-56 and a Powerball of 25.
The lucky convenience store is located at 405 3rd Street, if you want to test your luck next time around!
By the way - Carlton must be the secret weapon. This isn't the first time someone has won big from purchasing a Powerball ticket there. In January of 2015, another lucky Northland resident won a cool million dollars, after buying a ticket at the Carlton Travel Center.
The next jackpot is estimated at $40 million dollars.
