While the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots generated excitement, one South Dakota Lottery player may take more joy in the Dakota Cash jackpot.
Wednesday's drawings featured a $102,198 Dakota Cash jackpot winner. The winning ticket was purchased at Thrifty Smoke Shop, located on 606 E. North St. in Rapid City.
The winning numbers were 4, 13, 21, 31 and 32. The odds of hitting the jackpot were 1:324,632.
If you are Wednesday's winner, please sign the back of your ticket immediately and visit a South Dakota Lottery validation center to claim your prize. The Rapid City Lottery office is located at 1000 Cambell St., Suite 2.
The Dakota Cash game is exclusive to South Dakota with drawings each Wednesday and Saturday. For more information on the game, visit https://lottery.sd.gov/games/lottogames/dakotacash.
Wednesday also featured the end of one of the largest Powerball jackpot runs. The fourth largest Powerball jackpot of $731.1 million winning ticket was sold in Maryland. While the Powerball jackpot will return to $20 million, Friday's Mega Millions drawing will feature the third largest jackpot in U.S. Lottery history.
The jackpot is currently advertised at $970 million, which is the second largest Mega Millions prize. Please note that this jackpot could be increased prior to Friday's drawing.
While these jackpots generate excitement among players, the South Dakota Lottery always reminds its players to play responsibly. It only takes one ticket to win.
