Minnesota man walks away with $21.6 million Lotto America jackpot

13th July 2019 12:13pm

A Minnesota man has come forward to claim a $21.6 million Lotto America jackpot.

Jeffery Love of Elk River matched all five numbers drawn plus the Star Ball — 16, 22, 32, 36, and 42, with Star Ball number 8 to win $21.6 million before taxes.

Claiming the win just two days after the draw Love said: "I drive by the lottery office every day on my way to work and always say, 'One day... one day. " 

"I thought, 'OK, this is big. Let me check the numbers on my phone,' " he said. "When I compared the winning numbers to my ticket, they matched exactly. I called Vickie, my wife and said, 'We have a situation.' "

Stunned wife Vickie told the press that she had to check and recheck the numbers several times before she believed the couple were now multi-millionaires.

Mr Love purchased the winning ticket in Ramsey, at the Holiday convenience store on Ramsey Boulevard just off Hwy. 10.

The store is gaining a reputation for selling big winning tickets with a $1 million ticket and two $50,000 tickets being previously sold there. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling Mr Love the $21.6 million Lotto America jackpot ticket.

Lotto America is played in twelve states and this is the second time a Minnesotan has won it. The Kujava family of Badger shared a $22.8 million jackpot won on March 14, 2018.
