For Immediate Release: 9/2/2008

(Pierre) - A couple from Custer has claimed the $200,000 Powerball prize won in the Saturday, August 30 drawing.

R.E. Dustman and his wife Edie claimed the prize Tuesday afternoon at the Lottery office in Rapid City. Their ticket matched the five white balls, but not the red Powerball to win the game’s second prize.
