ROSEVILLE, Minn. (AP) — Lottery officials say a winning ticket sold in Faribault County is worth nearly $1.3 million.

The ticket for the Gopher 5 game was sold for Friday’s drawing. The ticket matched the winning numbers of 3, 4, 17, 29, and 34.

The store that sold Friday’s winning ticket will receive a $5,000 bonus.

Lottery spokeswoman Jenny Canfield says it’s the second million-dollar ticket sold in less than two months. She says a Duluth player won a jackpot worth $1.2 million on the day after Christmas.

Gopher 5 drawings are held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Players pick five numbers from 1 to 47 for a chance to win a jackpot of at least $100,000.
