A group of eight state government workers from Pierre on January 9, 2014 claimed their $6,000 Wild Card 2 prize from the January 8, 2014 drawing. Dubbing themselves "The Crazy 8", the group includes Deb Bessert, Kathy Droz, Colleen Hunt, Steven Lee Huset, Danita Intorn, Julie McBride, Jane Roberts, and Deb Witlock.
The winning ticket, which matched five of five white balls but missed the Wild Card to win the game's second prize, was purchased at Young's Mobil on E. Pleasant in Pierre. The store will receive a $600 bonus for the sale.
The odds of winning $6,000 playing Wild Card 2 are 1:126,579. The game is played only in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. The jackpot currently sits at $220,000 for the next drawing on Saturday, January 11, 2014.
