Stevenson, a Concordia University student, does not play the lottery regularly, according to a release from Jackpocket.

The app, which allows users to purchase state lottery tickets via their phone, made its Minnesota debut just two weeks ago.

Stevenson will claim his winnings at a press conference Thursday afternoon.
