ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Somebody had a good story to tell Monday when co-workers asked "How was your weekend?"

A Powerball ticket sold at the Speedway Convenience Store, 11872 Round Lake Boulevard, matched the first five numbers in Saturday's drawing. That makes the person holding that ticket $1 million richer.

Speedway gets $50,000 for selling the winning ticket. 

There were other significant winners Saturday night. A Northstar Cash ticket sold at Winner's Corner in Newport matched the $91,126 jackpot numbers, and a Powerball ticket sold at Gas Plus #5 in Minneapolis is worth $50,000.
