Eden Prairie Man Wins $200,000 in Powerball; $1 Million Ticket Sold in Howard Lake
And that $1 investment was worth an extra $150,000.

"I went and woke my wife up," Brewer said in the release. "She didn't believe it, so I brought her in the den and had her enter the numbers."

But that wasn't the biggest winning ticket sold in the state. A ticket sold at Pit Stop in Howard Lake matched all five white ball numbers for a $1 million prize. As of Thursday afternoon, though, the winner has yet to come forward, said Adam Prock, the director of communications and legislative affairs for the Minnesota Lottery.

He or she has a full year to claim their prize. And the business that sold the ticket earns a $5,000 winning bonus.

Of course, the big winner Wednesday night was 53-year-old Massachusetts hospital worker Mavis L. Wanczyk, who stepped forward Thursday to claim the biggest undivided lottery jackpot in U.S. history - $758.7 million.

"The first thing I want to do is just sit back and relax," Wanczyk told reporters at a news conference.

In addition to the $1 million and $200,000 winning tickets, three tickets worth $50,000 were sold in the state. They were purchased at Federated Co-Ops Inc. in Scandia, Isanti Mobil in Isanti and Maggie's Superette in Maplewood.

None of those prizes had yet been claimed either as of Thursday afternoon.
