Winona County lottery participant wins $1 million

Posted:

WINONA, Minn. (KTTC)- Two lucky people are confirmed the winners of the record-breaking Powerball jackpot, one in Missouri and one in Arizona. While nobody in Minnesota can claim the grand prize, one person in Winona County may have some new riches of their own.

While it may not be $580 million, matching the first five numbers does get you a million dollars, and one person in Winona County can now claim they are a millionaire.

No word yet on who the ticket holder is or where the ticket was purchased. They could be anywhere between St. Charles and Winona.

People we spoke to said they should invest it, save a little and give the rest to charity, and some even said they should spread the wealth and share some with them.

While you may not be a winner, the State of Minnesota looks pretty good.

Minnesota earned $10.1 million through this latest Powerball drawing. $5.6 million is going into the general fund, $2.6 million will be going right to the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund, the Game and Fish Fund will get $922,659, and the Natural Resources Fund will get that same amount. 

One lucky person in Winona County could be celebrating at this moment, and the State of Minnesota can celebrate with some extra funds as well.
