Someone who bought a lotto ticket in Roseau, Minnesota hit a massive jackpot of $22.8 million on Wednesday. 

The Minnesota Lottery says the Lotto America ticket was sold at a Holiday gas station in northwest Minnesota, just 10 miles from the Canadian border. The winning numbers were: 8-21-38-50-51, and the Star Ball was 4. 

The winner has yet to come forward. 

The odds of winning the Lotto America jackpot are 1 in 25,989,600, and this is the first jackpot winner since the game launched four months ago.

Lotto America is only available in 14 states: Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee and West Virginia.

Here's a map in case you're not sure where the heck Roseau is.
