The big question now is who bought the winning ticket at the Hermantown Walmart? In order to win $150,000 they would've matched 4 out of 5 white numbers while also matching the Powerball number. They also made what turned out to be smart decision by spending a little extra for the Power Play® feature.
Recently, regulation changes took place in order to protect lottery winners who win over $10,000, so unless the winner decides to go public with their lucky day, we may never know who this bigger winner is. The regulation changes occurred because big money winners can become targets for scammers and fraud, so the the Minnesota Lottery will not divulge their name unless they first agree to it.
