Minnesota is long overdue for a Powerball win! I decided to do a little digging this morning to find out when the last time someone from our great state won the jackpot. I noticed something very interesting.

The last Powerball win for Minnesota was on Aug. 7, 2013 when a man named Paul White won. If we dig back a little further, a Minnesotan named Thomas Moris won the money on Aug. 10, 2011. I thought it was a little strange that they both won in August.

Before Moris won the money, a man named Michael Hawes won in November...but, right before him another Minnesota couple won the money in August. Mary Beth and David Wenell won on August 14, 2004.

August seems to be a very lucky month for Minnesotans. If you're a superstitious person, you might want to grab yourself a ticket. It just so happens that the Powerball is up to over 600 million dollars. It's the second largest jackpot in lotto history. Good luck, Minnesota! We're long overdue!
