PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Bison man has claimed more than $53,000 in a Dakota Cash drawing.

Lottery officials say Merle Hulm purchased the winning ticket at the Bison Bar, which will receive more than $2,600 as a bonus for the sale.

In addition to paying bills, Hulm says he plans to buy a car for one of his daughters and five cows for himself. He says the most he had ever won before in a lottery was $500 on a scratch ticket.

The Dakota Cash jackpot currently sits at $20,000 for Saturday’s drawing.
