Have you always hoped that somehow you would come into a large sum of money? Or am  I the only one with that sort of wishful thinking? Well... according to Bring Me The News, possibly one Minnesotan... it could have been a tourist... is $1.6 Million dollars richer after Mondays Gopher 5 Lotto drawing.

The article says that the ticket was sold at Hermantown General Store to someone. This store is located in northern Minnesota, but you never know. Someone could have been on vacation up north and happened to live down here. The exact jackpot for Monday's drawing is $1,606,134. For all of us nonmath people the faster way to say this is $1.6 Million Dollars.

If you have a Gopher 5 ticket, you might want to double-check your numbers. The article says that if you have these numbers, you might be quitting your job tomorrow because you just became a whole lot richer.


The person with the winning ticket is going to have a nice few days. The store that sold the ticket is also happy. They are receiving a $5,000 bonus for just selling the ticket.

Because this such a large prize, if you have the winning numbers, you must claim the prize in person. According to the Minnesota Lottery website, large claims must be done at the headquarters in Roseville. The exact address is 2645 Long Lake Road, Roseville MN, 55113. If you want to speed the process up, you can fill out this form before you get there!

This is such a great Christmas gift for whoever won this chunk of money.
