Powerball Tickets worth $50K Sold in Rapid City, Sioux Falls
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — No one in South Dakota won the world record $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot, but two tickets worth $50,000 apiece were sold in the state.
Lottery officials say one ticket was sold in Rapid City and the other in Sioux Falls. They both matched four of five white ball numbers and the Powerball in Wednesday's drawing to win the game's third prize. The odds of winning it are 1 in about 913,000.
The Powerball jackpot will be split three ways, among winners in Florida, Tennessee and California. The jackpot starts over at $40 million for the next drawing, on Saturday.
Separately, a Wild Card 2 ticket sold in Sioux Fall is worth $6,000 in Wednesday's drawing.
