Twenty-twenty is just seven days old and already there have been four $1 million lottery winners in Minnesota. 

The latest lucky ticket was claimed Monday at Minnesota State Lottery headquarters in Roseville, with a couple from the Twin Cities metro area handing over the winning ticket that matched the first five numbers of the Dec. 21 Powerball drawing. 

The winners are Stanley and Marcia Jeunemann, of Elk River, who cashed in their single-line quick-pick ticket worth $1 million. They purchased the ticket at Market Place Express in Big Lake, earning the convenience store a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning game. 

The Jeunemanns are the fourth $1 million winners in Minnesota in 2020, but they weren't the only ones claiming big prizes Monday at Minnesota State Lottery headquarters. 

$100,000 – Claimed by John Zgutowicz, of Wyoming, Minnesota. He played the Minnesota Millionaire Raffle and plans to go on his first family vacation with his wife and three daughters, according to lottery officials. 

$100,000 – Gerardo Diaz, of Glencoe, took home the prize after also playing the Minnesota Millionaire Raffle. He bought the ticket at Kwik Trip in Norwood Young America. 

$100,000 – Another Minnesota Millionaire Raffle won by Matthew Morse, of St. Paul, who purchased it at a Speedway in Burnsville. 

$200,000 – Daniel Gilliam, of Buhl, northern Minnesota, played the Money Mania scratch game that he purchased at Buhl Short Stop.
