MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – If you recently purchased a Gopher 5 ticket, check your numbers again.
The Minnesota State Lottery says a Gopher 5 ticket worth more than half a million dollars was sold in Washington County — and has not been claimed.
The ticket was purchased for the drawing on April 30, 2010 and is worth $586,214. The ticket holder has until 5 p.m. on May 2 to claim their prize.
The winning Gopher 5 numbers that were drawn on April 30 are 33-34-38-41-44. The ticket holder that correctly chose those numbers should immediately sign the back of the ticket and call the Lottery’s Public Relations office at (651) 635-8271.
