Osakis residents win jackpot

While Judy Bohler and her husband were running errands in Sauk Centre on May 12, the Osakis resident bought a ticket at Westside Liquor for that night's Northstar Cash drawing.

As she watched the drawing that evening and saw the winning numbers 1-2-3-8-24 on the screen, she said, "I know I have three numbers in a row - maybe I have some."

Bohler kept repeating the numbers as she headed to her bedroom to get the ticket out of her purse. When she looked at the numbers on her quick-pick ticket, "There they were! All the numbers," she said.

Bohler won the Northstar Cash jackpot worth $62,895 on May 12 by matching all five numbers drawn.

A Northstar Cash jackpot prize sold in Douglas County has not yet been claimed. The ticket was from the April 28, 2011 drawing and it's worth $25,000.

To play Northstar Cash, players select five numbers from 1 to 31. Matching the five numbers drawn wins the jackpot, which starts at $25,000 and grows until it is won. Players also win by matching two, three or four of the numbers drawn.

Northstar Cash drawings are conducted daily after the Daily 3 drawing. Tickets must be purchased by 6:10 p.m. on the day of the drawing.
