A Pierre man has claimed a Wild Card 2 prize worth $5,000.
South Dakota lottery officials say Alvin "Bill" Eckstrom's ticket matched all five white ball numbers but missed the Wild Card to win the game's second prize. The odds of doing so are one in about 90,600.
Eckstrom purchased the ticket at a store in Pierre.
The winning numbers were 2, 10, 16, 23, 27, and the Wild Card is the Ace of Clubs.
Wild Card 2 is played in the Dakotas, Montana and Idaho. The jackpot sits at $430,000 for the Saturday drawing.
