CUSTER, S.D. (AP) - A Custer resident has claimed a $50,000 Powerball prize that he won last week.

South Dakota lottery officials say Ray McLaughlin has claimed the winning ticket from Wednesday’s drawing. The ticket matched four of five white ball numbers and the Powerball to win the game’s third prize. The odds of winning it are 1 in about 913,000.

McLaughlin’s winning ticket was sold at a store on Highway 16 West in Custer. The store will get a $1,000 for the sale.

Powerball is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The jackpot sits at $116 million for Wednesday’s drawing.
