Regular Lottery Player wins $30,000

Fred Shank was the lucky holder of a winning Mega Millions lottery ticket. He got four of the five numbers and the Mega Ball. He was outside his house cutting wood when his wife, Bonnie, came to him with the news that his ticket won. They immediately went to Freedom Valu Center to double check and collect the win. The ticket slip came out and they were informed that they could not collect at the store. Tickets winning more than $100 can only be collected at the South Dakota Lottery office in Sioux Falls.

The ticket matched four out of the five numbers which would have earned them $10,000. However, since the Megaplier option was chosen, the total win was worth $30,000.
