MOBRIDGE, SD -
Three siblings from Mobridge have claimed a $40,553 lottery jackpot.
South Dakota lottery officials say Robert and Arlo Maisch and their sister, Connie Lutz, had a pact to evenly divide any jackpot any of them won. The siblings are dividing the jackpot won in the Jan. 25 Dakota Cash drawing. Officials did not say which of the three bought the winning ticket.
The Gas `N Goodies store in Mobridge is getting a bonus of about $2,000 for selling the ticket.
Dakota Cash is played only in South Dakota. The jackpot sits at $20,000 for the drawing on Wednesday. The odds of winning it are one in about 325,000.
