Another $1M Powerball was sold in MN – but it hasn't been claimed yet

A Minnesotan won $1 million on Wednesday's Powerball drawing – but hasn't come forward to claim their prize yet.

The Minnesota State Lottery says the winning ticket was sold at Carroll’s Corn in Rochester.

Whoever it is, the lottery suggests they sign the back of the ticket and call 651-635-8271 to make arrangements to claim it.

The winning numbers were 30-33-35-38-64, with the Powerball coming up 22.

Under state law, you’ve got one year from the date of the drawing to claim your prize.

If no one comes forward, however, the unclaimed money will go into Minnesota’s general fund.

It's the second time in a week this happened. A bus driver from St. Paul, who semi-retired in 2007, scored $1 million in Saturday's drawing by hitting the five regular numbers, but missing on the red Powerball.

He said he's now fully retiring.

The Lottery says, in total, the games have brought in more than $2.6 billion for the state. About $1 billion has gone to environmental causes statewide, while about $1.5 billion has gone to the general fund (which can be used in a lot of different ways).
