A Whitewood man has claimed a $30,000 Hot Lotto prize.
South Dakota lottery officials say Aaron Arehart's ticket matched all five white ball numbers but missed the Hot Ball to win the game's $10,000 second prize. The amount was tripled because Arehart purchased a multiplier option.
The ticket was sold at Woody's in Whitewood. The store will receive a $3,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
Arehart says he's going to pay off all his debt, do some traveling and save the rest.
Hot Lotto is played in 14 states and the District of Columbia. The odds of winning the second prize are one in about 608,000. The jackpot for the Saturday drawing sits at just under $5.4 million.
