The South Dakota Lottery says Beryl "Buddy" Tilton II won the top prize of $50,000 in the Caesars scratch ticket game. The winning ticker was purchased at Loaf 'N Jug on Highway 44 in Rapid City.

Tilton's wife Jennifer noticed that one $50,000 prize remained to be claimed in the Caesars game. In a release, Buddy Tilton said, "We knew there was a limited amount of tickets out there that could be purchased and all of the stores were we normally buy our lottery tickers didn't have them. So I said let's try a few stores and see what we can find. I told my wife I was going to buy 10 tickets and she just said O.K."
