PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A group of 14 co-workers from a Watertown area business have claimed their $230,000 Wild Card 2 jackpot.

South Dakota lottery officials say the “EMPI 14” all work in the West Building of the EMPI facility in Clear Lake. They’ve been collectively purchasing lottery tickets for years but this is their first jackpot.

Each member of the “EMPI 14” will receive about $12,321 after taxes if the winnings are split equally.

The group is made up of 12 women and two men. The members of the group have declined to participate in advertising and media promotions.

Wild Card 2 is played in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota.

The odds of winning the top prize in Wild Card 2 are nearly 1 in 1.9 million.
