West Fargo woman hits it big in Minnesota Lottery at lucky Moorhead store

ROSEVILLE, Minn. -- A West Fargo woman and Orton's Holiday in Moorhead are both lucky winners in the Minnesota Lottery.

Lori Jensen and her boyfriend each purchased two Frogger scratch-off tickets at Orton’s on Monday.

“Frogger is my favorite,” said Jensen. “My boyfriend scratched his tickets right away and didn’t win. I forgot about mine and scratched them later. After I played and thought I won, I drove back to Moorhead to double check.”

The result? A $75,000 winner.

Jensen drove to lottery headquarters in Roseville to claim her prize, picking up her daughter Haley in the Twin Cities along the way.

“I think a nice dinner is in order for us tonight,” she said.

Orton’s Holiday isn't new to big winners. In the past five years, the store has sold a $1.4 million Gopher 5® ticket, a $50,000 scratch-off ticket, two $30,000 scratch-off tickets and two $21,000 scratch-off tickets.

Orton’s Holiday, 725 30th Ave. South in Moorhead, will receive a $500 bonus for selling the top prize-winning Frogger ticket.
