“You can’t win unless you play,” Mullaney said in a news release announcing his win. “I will continue to play because this is not our big one. I hope you see me again in the next two years for a big, big jackpot. I can feel it in my bones.”

Mullaney bought the winning tickets at The Corner Gas & Goodies in White, South Dakota. 

Mullaney found out he won when his girlfriend scrolled through the South Dakota Lottery Facebook page and saw the winning numbers.
