HOVEN, S.D. (AP) - A retired nurse in Hoven has claimed the $200,000 Wild Card 2 jackpot in Saturday’s drawing.

South Dakota Lottery officials say Christa Ramirez is the lucky ticket holder. Officials say Ramirez matched all five white ball numbers and the wild card.

Ramirez says she immediately “didn’t believe” she hit the jackpot. She adds the money will allow her to travel with her husband to visit family and make some improvements around her home.

The odds of winning the top prize in Wild Card 2 are 1 in more than 1.8 million. It is played in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota.
