PIERRE, S.D. (AP) _ South Dakota lottery officials say there
were jackpot winners in two of the state's five games on Saturday.
A ticket sold in Sioux Falls won the $125,000 Wild Card 2
jackpot in Saturday's drawing, and a ticket sold in Peever won the

about 723,000. Powerball is played in most states, the District of
Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
