Norenberg and his wife, Shelby, told lottery officials they will pay off their student loan debt, their mortgage, and will use the rest of the winnings to help with their one-year-old daughter and a new baby on the way. The state's most recent jackpot victor was a Milwaukee resident in 2017.

Choose five numbers between 1 and 69, and one Powerball number between 1 and 26. No one broke the bank in Saturday night's drawing. The North Dakota ticket is worth $2 million because the player had the Power Play option.
