CHESTER, South Dakota — A Mega Millions ticket sold in Chester is worth $25,000 in Wednesday's drawing.

South Dakota lottery officials say the ticket matched four of five white ball numbers and the Mega Ball to win the game's $5,000 third prize. An option purchased for an additional dollar multiplied the prize fivefold.

The odds of winning $5,000 playing Mega Millions are 1 in about 740,000.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The jackpot sits at $33 million for Friday's drawing.
