$1 Million Powerball Ticket Sold In Minnesota As Jackpot Nears Record Amount
On Monday, while nobody claimed the Halloween jackpot of $1 billion, Minnesota did have six $50,000 winners and the state remained a lucky place to be for the November 2 Powerball drawing.
Going into Wednesday night, the Powerball jackpot had reached $1,200,000,000. When the numbers were drawn at 9:59 p.m., someone in Minnesota won $1 million dollars, while three other Minnesota tickets won $50,000, but nobody won the $1.2 billion jackpot.
Wednesday's winning Powerball numbers were 2, 11, 22, 35, 60 and the Powerball 23. According to the Minnesota State Lottery, the $1 million Powerball ticket was purchased at the Kwik Trip in Hinckley, Minnesota.
The $50,000 winning tickets were purchased south of Hinckley. Here are the Minnesota Powerball cash winners from November 2, along with where they purchased their tickets:
- $1,000,000 11-02-2022 KWIK TRIP #186 460 MORRIS AVE S, HINCKLEY

Unless they decide to come forward publicly, we may never know who the big winners are. Regulation changes took place in order to protect lottery winners who win over $10,000. Big money winners can become targets for scammers and fraud, so the the Minnesota Lottery will not divulge their name unless they first agree to it.
The Powerball drawing will take place at 9:59 p.m. on Saturday, November 5. The estimated jackpot is an unbelievable $1.5 billion dollars. As it stands now, that would be just short of the world record $1.586 billion Powerball grand prize shared by three winners in 2016. However, the current jackpot could still grow if enough tickets are sold before the drawing.
If you want to take a shot a being a billionaire, remember to purchase your Powerball tickets by 9:00pm CST on Saturday, then be sure to check Saturday night to see if you've won a near record jackpot.
