Someone in North Dakota just scored $3 million with their Mega Millions ticket!

Fargo has all the cool things - a SCHEELS with a second story and a Ferris Wheel; tons of unique local bars, restaurants, and shops; the biggest shows and concerts; and now a multi-million dollar lottery winner!

According to KX News, The North Dakota Lottery has reported that a Fargo Casey's General Store recently sold a winning ticket. The winner will get $3 million for their Mega Millions Megaplier ticket, and Casey's will get $10,000 for the win. KX News reports that this is the second time someone has won that much money in North Dakota - the first time was in Williston in 2016. Get the full story here.

The winning numbers on the $3 million dollar Mega Millions ticket were: 11, 37, 47, 53, 56, and 15, with a Megaplier of 3.

The North Dakota Lottery's website lists the winning numbers as: 11, 37, 47, 53, 56, and 15. The Megaplier - which multiplied the winner's earnings - was 3. At the time of this post, KX News reports that the winner has yet to come forward to claim their millions.

Even though the biggest money winners are the ones that typically make the news, there are plenty of smaller jackpots hit by North Dakota residents as well. According to the North Dakota Lottery, recent winners won between $22,000 and $150,000 through different lotteries.

As someone who is hoping to rid herself of student loan debt, I think I need to start regularly playing the lottery. Seriously, if I could just cover that bill, I would be debt-free! What would you do if you with your money if you became a sudden millionaire?
