DEADWOOD, South Dakota — A Sturgis man has claimed a Wild Card 2 ticket sold in Deadwood worth $6,000.

Lottery officials say Gary Elton bought the ticket that matched all five white ball numbers but missed the Wild Card to pick up the game's second prize. The odds of winning it are 1 in about 127,000.

Elton bought the ticket at Big D Oil on Main Street in Deadwood. The retailer will receive a $600 bonus for the sale.

Wild Card 2 is played in Idaho, Montana and the Dakotas. The jackpot is at $230,000 for the Saturday drawing.
