(S.D.)-Quilting Group Wins $55K On Scratch-Off Ticket

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 02/08/2013 09:01 AM
     PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A group of 17 quilting friends have won $55,000 on a lottery scratch-off ticket.
 
     The winning $5 Cash Deluxe ticket was purchased at the Family Thrift Eastside in Rapid City.
 
     The group members each week pool $2 each to purchase scratch and lotto tickets. Betty Richards says the group started buying tickets together five years ago in the hopes of building a large retirement home if the members were to win big.
 
     In this instance, each member will receive about $2,400 after taxes.
 
     Scratch ticket top prizes range from $500 to $350,000.
