Minnesota Sees Back-to-Back Lotto America Jackpot Wins

After a lucky lottery player secured a $3.73 million jackpot from the popular game last month, earlier this week, another player scored a $3.11 million jackpot

Lotto America, one of the popular lottery games that are a part of Powerball, announced its latest jackpot winner. Earlier this week, a lucky lottery player from Minnesota hit the game’s jackpot by guessing correctly all six numbers drawn on Wednesday. To win the grand prize, the player guessed correctly all red balls: 7, 12, 17, 22 and 52, along with blue Star Ball 3, granting him the game’s jackpot, a whopping $3.11 million.

The aforementioned $3.11 million represents annual installment payments for a period of 29 years. In case the winner selects a lump cash sum, the jackpot would be decreased to $1.43 million. Still, it is important to mention the two sums are estimated before taxes are applied.

The latest jackpot win marks the second time a Lotto America jackpot has been won in Minnesota since the start of the year. Last month, on March 4, 2024, another jackpot from the popular lottery game was won. At the time, a lucky player secured a $3.73 million win.

Currently, Lotto America is played in 13 US states, including Minnesota, New Mexico, Iowa, Delaware, Tennessee and West Virginia, among others. The price of the draw game is $1 and the overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 9.63. On the other hand, the odds of winning the Lotto America jackpot are 1 in 25.9 million.
