Since 1992 the family has had a pact to split any lotto jackpot any of them win among the four of them. The winning ticket that finally allowed them to do that was purchased at Gas ‘N Goodies on Main Street in Mobridge. The store will get a $2,027.65 bonus for the sale.
The odds of winning the jackpot are one in about 325,000. Dakota Cash is played only in South Dakota.
