PIERRE, S.D. – The first Lucky For Life drawing of the new year was highlighted by continued success for South Dakota Lottery players.

A ticket matching 5 of 5 winning numbers was sold at Coyle’s Super Valu in Philip prior to Thursday’s drawing, earning the game’s second prize of $25,000 a year for life. The winning ticket also features a cash option of $390,000.

Since Lucky For Life sales began in South Dakota on June 5, 2017, the state has been home to several big winners.

Thursday’s drawing resulted in South Dakota’s fourth second-prize winner, while a top prize was also claimed in 2019.

Earlier this week, Kent Waldner of Carpenter claimed his Dakota Cash Jackpot worth more than $455,000. He purchased his winning ticket at a retailer in Huron.
