The South Dakota Lottery says Melvin Lee Young of Allen claimed a $150,012 Powerball prize from the Saturday drawing. Young matched four of five white ball numbers and the Powerball to win the game's $50,000 third prize and won another $4 on another line of the same ticket. With the Power Play option, that prize was tripled. In a release, Young said, "My prayers have been answered. First, I'm going to pay some bills and then save some for this and that." Young bought his winning ticket at the Fresh Start on Bennett Avenue in Martin. (South Dakota Lottery photo)
