The jackpot-winning ticket was bought at Holiday Stationstores, located at 14350 Xkimo St. NW in Ramsey. The business earned a $50,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

This is Minnesota’s first Mega Millions jackpot winner since Minnesota joined the game in 2010.

The couple says they have told some relatives and co-workers and started making plans for their future. To help navigate their new life as lottery winners, they took time to assemble a team that includes a lawyer, financial advisor and an accountant before they claimed the prize. They said that their immediate plans are “typical.” They would like to purchase a house and a car, and travel.
