This was the fourth year that Mike Snyder of Wadena played the Lottery's Minnesota Millionaire Raffle game. Usually he purchases one ticket; this year he decided to purchase two tickets. This was a very lucky decision because the second ticket ended up being worth $1 million.


"I always buy a ticket because I figure my chance is as good as anybody else's," said Snyder. "I never dreamed of winning $1 million. I thought if I won one of those smaller prizes, that would be great."
