Holiday gas station in Buffalo sold Gopher 5 lottery ticket worth $1.8 million

A Holiday store in Buffalo sold the winning ticket.

While all eyes were the $1.537 billion Mega Millions drawing Tuesday night and the $620 million Powerball drawing Wednesday night, there was a Minnesota Lottery ticket that hit for nearly $2 million. 

Minnesota Lottery says someone won $1.8 million on Wednesday when they matched all five numbers – 9, 22, 25, 38, 46 – on a Gopher 5 ticket that was purchased at a Holiday gas station located on 8th Street Northeast in Buffalo, Minnesota. 

The winner? Stephen Braun of Buffalo, whose $1.8 million jackpot is the third biggest in Gopher 5 history. 

The Holiday store will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. 

Meanwhile, another person matched four of the first five numbers in Wednesday's Powerball drawing to win $50,000. That ticket was sold at a Holiday gas station in Hastings, located at 1500 Vermillion Street. 

No one won the Powerball jackpot Wednesday night, pushing Saturday's drawing to an estimated $750 million.
