Dennie and Kristi Himle spent seven months as unwitting millionaires until last week when Kristi found two unchecked Powerball tickets in her car. One of them turned out to be a winner in the April 21, 2012 drawing. The Himles here claim their winnings at Lottery headquarters in Roseville Friday, Nov. 30.

A Claremont couple unknowingly drove around with a $1 million winning Powerball ticket in the glove box of their car for more than seven months.



It wasn't until Nov. 24 when Kristi Himle was searching for her registration information in her car that she came across two unchecked Powerball tickets from the April 21, 2012 drawing. "I figured they weren't even good anymore but I brought them inside for Dennie [her husband] to check," she explained.



When Dennie had the tickets scanned at a retailer later that day, he got a message that one of the tickets was worth more than $30,000 and must be redeemed at Lottery headquarters. Unaware of the exact prize amount, he went back home and got on the computer to check the Lottery's website and discovered that the couple won $1 million! "We were both in shock," said Dennie.



The couple arrived at the Lottery's headquarters in Roseville on Nov. 30 to claim the prize.



Kwik Trip, located at 1112 Second Ave. N.W. in Faribault, sold the winning ticket. The winning numbers drawn on April 21, 2012 were 6-8-20-42-51 and the Powerball was 16.
