MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Lottery says two men from Mitchell have claimed a $50,000 Powerball prize.

Philip Picha and Mike Hilton are each getting $25,000 thanks to a Powerball ticket from the June 1 drawing. The pair has been buying lottery tickets together for 20 years.

Picha and Hilton matched four of five white ball numbers and the Powerball to pick up the game’s third prize. The odds of winning that prize are about 1 in 900,000.

The ticket was purchased at Westown Sinclair in Alexandria, which will receive a $1,000 bonus for the sale.

The Powerball jackpot currently sits at $110 million for Saturday’s drawing.
