Fridley Powerball player just misses $1B prize, wins $1 million

While the jackpot in the multistate Powerball lottery has surged past the $1 billion mark, there was no foolin' around in Fridley on April Fools' Day this year, when a player snared a cool $1 million prize.

A Powerball ticket purchased at Casey's General Store along University Avenue matched the first five numbers drawn Monday night to snag the $1 million windfall - before taxes.

The numbers drawn were 19-24-40-42-56, and the Powerball was 23.

The $1 million prize must be claimed in person at Minnesota Lottery headquarters in Roseville. Minnesota Lottery officials recommended that winners call ahead to make an appointment.
