Jeff WInger

Meet out Big Foot Hunter!

Congratulations to Jeff Winger of Maplewood on winning $5,000 in the Lottery’s Hunt for Big Cash second-chance drawing on Oct. 22. “It was really shocking,” Winger recalled as he received the phone call about his big win, which consists of $3,000 cash and $2,000 in travel. Winger says he’s looking forward to getting away this winter. “I’m definitely going some place warm!”

Bigfoot Finders!

There were Bigfoot sightings everywhere. At the State Fair, in Duluth, Moorhead and Springfield. These intrepid trackers, spotted him in his native habitat - the convenience store! They shared the proof of their find with our Lottery followers on Instagram and Twitter and were awarded their very own Bigfoot tracking fanny pack, binoculars and $50 in Hunt for Big Cash tickets. We hope they discover a big win on their next adventure!
