Saturday, April 7th, 2012 at 9:49 am

Fueled by the chance of winning big in the lottery, Minnesotans set a new record high in lottery sales in March, lottery officials say. The record is a 12 percent increase from the previous record.

The Mega Millions $640 million jackpot was a big help for sales. That jackpot saw sales of $38.7 million.

If sales continue at this pace, lottery officials say they’ll beat the record $504 million set last year.
