ROSEVILLE, Minn. (AP) — Three members of a North Mankato family have claimed a Hot Lotto jackpot worth nearly $3 million.

Lottery officials say Thomas Browne, his son Lee Browne and his daughter Elaine Pleiss presented the winning ticket Thursday.

Thomas Browne says he heard on the radio that the winning Hot Lotto jackpot ticket for March 14 was sold in Nicollet County. He checked his ticket and discovered it matched the winning numbers 1-6-13-25-27 and the Hot Ball of 15 to win a jackpot of $2.99 million.

The cash option is $2.21 million before tax withholding.

Officials say it’s Minnesota’s 10th Hot Lotto jackpot winner. It comes two months after Don Conrad of Grand Rapids won a $2.61 million jackpot on Jan. 14.
