Minnesota has sold its third million-dollar winning lottery ticket in the space of less than a week.
The $1 million Powerball ticket was sold at the Market Place Express at 16777 Marketplace Drive in Big Lake, which matched the first five numbers drawn in the Dec. 21 draw.
The numbers for that draw were 19-31-35-50-67, with 14 the Powerball.
It comes in a week that has seen a $1.6 million Gopher 5 ticket sold in Hermantown, and another $1 million Powerball win in Mankato.
However, the Minnesota Lottery says that all three of the tickets have yet to be claimed, with winners having a year from the date of the drawing to do so.
Market Place Express earns a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
