The new year is off to a great start for Casey Foertsch of Underwood after he won $100,000 in the Minnesota Millionaire Raffle on Jan. 1, 2018.

Foertsch purchased his winning ticket at Under-Mart, Inc. located at 300 Frontage Ave. W. in Underwood.

He claimed the prize at Lottery headquarters in Roseville on Jan. 3, 2018.

Tickets for the Jan. 1, 2018 Minnesota Millionaire Raffle went on sale Oct. 24, 2017 and sold out on Dec. 12, 2017—the earliest sell out date in December on record. The Raffle game, which originally debuted in 2006, continues to grow in popularity every year because of its limited number of tickets, guaranteed winners and it offers the Lottery’s best odds to win $1 million.
