Another lucky individual has just become a millionaire, courtesy of the Minnesota Lottery.

The latest Gopher 5 drawing Monday night had a jackpot of $1,911,615. To win that jackpot, a ticket must match all 5 numbers drawn, and one lottery ticket purchased in a Southwest Minnesota town did just that with a near-record-setting jackpot for the game.

The Gopher 5 drawing takes place every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6:17 PM. Each ticket costs only $1 with a minimum jackpot of $100,000.

If you match two numbers, you win $1, matching three numbers gets you $15, four numbers and your winnings go up to $500, and match five numbers you walk away with the whole kit and caboodle.

Monday night's Gopher 5 numbers are 29, 35, 38, 39, 40.
