Lottery luck came to Duluth, the North Shore this weekend
The North Shore was a lucky place to be this weekend if you bought a Powerball ticket. According to the Minnesota Lottery, one ticket purchased in Duluth for the June 25 drawing matched the first five numbers drawn to win $1 million. A second ticket purchased in Grand Marais matched four of the first five numbers plus the Powerball to win $50,000.
Make sure you check your tickets! The June 25 winning Powerball numbers: 6-12-20-27-32 and Powerball 4.
The $1 million winning ticket was sold at the London Road Holiday Station in Duluth. According to the Minnesota Lottery, the station will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the $1 million winning ticket. The $50,000 winning ticket was purchased at Marathon, located at 104 E. Highway 61 in Grand Marais.
The lottery says as of Sept. 1, 2021, the names and cities of lottery prize winners above $10,000 are private data. The names of the winners will not be released, unless they choose to make it public.
The $1 million prize must be claimed in person at the Minnesota Lottery’s headquarters in Roseville. The $50,000 prize can be claimed by mail or in person at any Minnesota Lottery office. It is recommended that winners call ahead to check hours and to make an appointment.
Perhaps the luck will continue for the Northland? No one won the jackpot, so the June 27 Powerball jackpot grew to an estimated $346 million.
