(Pierre) - A ticket that won $200,000 in Saturday’s Powerball drawing was sold in Spearfish. The ticket was one of two in the nation that matched the five white balls, but not the red Powerball to win the game’s second prize. The other was sold in Tennessee.
The winning Powerball numbers for the July 1, 2006 drawing were: 02, 31, 35, 40, 42 and the Powerball was 34. The Power Play multiplier was 3.
Lottery director Norm Lingle said the ticket holder should sign the back of the ticket immediately, put it in a safe place, and contact the Lottery office in Rapid City (605-394-5106) or Pierre (605-773-5770) to make arrangements to validate the ticket and claim the prize.
Lottery offices are closed Tuesday for Independence Day. The winner has 180 days to claim the prize.
Because no one won the jackpot Saturday night, the estimated jackpot for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing is $50 million. Powerball is played in 29 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1:146,107,962. The odds of winning the game’s second prize are 1:3,563,609.
