South Dakota lottery officials say an 84-year-old Pierre man has claimed a Wild Card 2 jackpot worth nearly a half-million dollars.
Duane Delaney lives within walking distance of the South Dakota Lottery office, and he turned in his ticket for $499,694 on Monday. He bought it at a Pierre convenience store.
Officials say Delaney's ticket matched all five numbers and the Wild Card in the Saturday drawing. The odds of winning the prize are one in about 1.9 million.
Wild Card 2 is played in the Dakotas, Montana and Idaho.
Delaney says he purchases two Powerball, two Hot Lotto and two Wild Card 2 tickets for each drawing.
