For the second time in three years, Lynn's Dakotamart in Fort Pierre has a customer who will soon enjoy luck that lasts a lifetime.
Thursday's Lucky for Life drawing was highlighted by a second prize winner of $25,000 a year for life. The prize also features a cash option of $390,000.
Since Lucky For Life sales began in South Dakota on June 5, 2017, the State of South Dakota has been home to five second prize winners--two of whom purchased their winning ticket at Lynn's Dakotamart in Fort Pierre.
The numbers on the ticket were 6, 8, 20, 28 and 43, and the odds of winning the prize were 1:1,813,028. Thursday's winner was only matching the winning Lucky Ball away from claiming the game's top prize, which is $1,000 a day for the rest of his or her life.
If you are Thursday's winner, please sign the back of your ticket immediately. The Lottery also advises the winner to speak to a financial advisor before claiming the prize. While the Lottery's validation centers remain closed, arrangements may be made to claim the prize by calling 605-773-5770. For more information on claims procedures, please visit
