Stillwater Couple Claims $21.1 million Powerball ® Jackpot Prize

Jackie and Jim Lagoon of Stillwater are Minnesota's newest Powerball millionaires. Jackie Lagoon stopped at SuperAmerica, 2455 Centennial Road in North St. Paul on Saturday evening (July 3) to purchase a Hot Lotto ® ticket for that night's drawing. “I wanted to purchase a Hot Lotto ticket because the jackpot was high and the odds to win are better than Powerball,” Jackie Lagoon said.

Lagoon knew she had to purchase the tickets by 9 p.m. for that night's drawing. After she requested her Hot Lotto ticket, Lagoon told the clerk, “Give me a Powerball too.” Lagoon's watch was fast, so the tickets she received were for the drawings on Wednesday, July 7.

Jackie Lagoon checked her tickets on Thursday morning. She was shocked when the numbers on her single quick-pick ticket matched the Powerball numbers of 18-25-30-34-41 and the Powerball of 10 drawn the night before. Lagoon is very pleased with her last-minute Powerball purchase. “It's the smartest thing I ever did!” she said.

The Lagoons will receive the lump-sum cash payment of $11,143,150 ($7,549,484 after withholding).

This is Minnesota's 17 th Powerball jackpot win.
