Check For These Tickets! Minnesota Lottery Has Millions In Unclaimed Prizes
Imagine having a million-dollar lottery ticket and not knowing it? You have to check your numbers! Or worse, imagine knowing you have that ticket but not knowing where it is. You would lose your mind if the numbers you selected every week were drawn, but you weren’t able to find the ticket!
The Minnesota Lottery says there are millions of dollars worth of prizes that they haven’t been able to pay out because the winners haven’t come forward with their tickets. Below you'll see info including the name of the lotto game, the location the ticket was purchased, and the winning amount.
This might be a good time to go through your junk drawer and double check those lotto tickets.
