Lester Prairie resident Matt Lynch has played all eleven Minnesota Millionaire Raffle games. “It’s one of my favorite games,” he said. It’s safe to say that the Raffle game will continue to be a favorite thanks to the $100,000 win that he discovered on New Year’s Day morning.
He shared the good news with his wife, Paige Lynch, right away. “I told Paige, ‘We won $100,000!’” To which she replied, “No we didn’t, go back to sleep.” Paige said that she started to believe him “after the third time,” he told her that they had won. After they double checked that the numbers on their ticket was a match for one of the five $100,000 Raffle prizes, they shared the news with others. “No one believed us,” said Paige.
Lynch claimed the prize at the Lottery’s office in Roseville on Jan. 6, 2017.
Storman’s, located at 9350 County Road 19 in Loretto, sold Lynch’s winning ticket.
