PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota was home to multiple big winners as a result of this weekend’s lottery drawings. The winners were highlighted by South Dakota’s seventh Lucky for Life second prize winner.
The winning ticket was purchased at Ken’s Superfair Foods in Aberdeen. The ticket matched all five numbers and was just the Lucky Ball away from claiming the top prize.
The second-tier prize gives the winning player a choice of $25,000 a year for life or the cash option of $390,000.
South Dakota’s exclusive lotto game, Dakota Cash, also had some weekend excitement with its $126,000 jackpot split among two winning tickets. One of the winning tickets was purchased at Maverik, Inc. in Rapid City, while the other was purchased at Cowboy Country Store on Highway 212 in Watertown.
Meanwhile, the Mega Millions jackpot continued its ascension over the weekend as Tuesday’s jackpot currently sits at $790 million.
