SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota lottery officials say a Watertown man has claimed a Dakota Cash jackpot of more than $35,000.

Travis Carrico claimed the prize Monday. He won the prize after matching all five white balls in the May 4 drawing.

Carrico says he was on vacation in Arizona when he first learned he had the winning ticket. He says he will use the prize to pay bills and will make charitable donations.

The lucky ticket was sold at a Hy-Vee grocery store in Watertown. The store will get almost $1,800 for the sale.

Dakota Cash is played only in South Dakota. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in about 325,000. The jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing sits at $24,000.
