BROOKINGS WOMAN CLAIMS $90,585 DAKOTA CASH JACKPOT
August 11, 2016
Evelyn Edwards was waiting in line at Hy-Vee when she saw a sign promoting Dakota Cash, a lotto game she always plays. The Brookings woman took three $1 bills from her pocket and purchased three Dakota Cash Quick Picks for the July 27, 2016 drawing. By July 28, Edwards was $90,585 richer and a Dakota Cash jackpot winner.
 
Edwards normally buys her lotto tickets at Hy-Vee on 22nd Avenue in Brookings and it was there that she found out she’d won.
 
“I checked my tickets at the Hy-Vee customer service desk and the clerk said I had a big winner. So then I checked my numbers on-line. My first reaction was ‘are you kidding me?’” Edwards said.
 
The store will receive a $4,529 bonus for the sale.
 
Although the first person she told was her next door neighbor, Edwards says the best part of winning has been sharing the big news with her family. Among her plans for what to do with the jackpot are visiting family members, purchasing a monument for her husband, and putting some of the money in the bank.
 
Edwards also plans to keep playing Dakota Cash.
 
“Playing the lottery is interesting, it’s something fun for people to do. And winning feels unbelievable,” she said.
 
Dakota Cash is played and won only in South Dakota. The jackpot currently sits at $20,000 for the next drawing on Sat., Aug. 6, 2016.
