The first Mega Millions drawing of 2023 will be a memorable one for a South Dakota player.

Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing resulted in a $4 million winning ticket purchased in Rapid City. The winning ticket was sold at Corner Pantry, located at 310 E. Fairmont Blvd. in Rapid City.

The winning ticket matched 5 of 5 winning numbers and was just the Mega Ball away from the $785 million jackpot. The $1 million second prize was multiplied by 4 after the player elected to the purchase the Megaplier add on.

The South Dakota Lottery recommends the winner sign the back of his or her ticket immediately. The prize may be claimed at any South Dakota Lottery validation center.

The Lottery’s Rapid City office is located at 221 Mall Dr. The Lottery also has validation centers in Pierre and Sioux Falls.

While South Dakota was home to a $4 million winner, the Mega Millions jackpot continues to reach rare heights.
