Winning Wild Card 2 ticket purchased in Dickinson

A recent customer of a Dickinson convenience store has a big early Christmas present waiting.

North Dakota Lottery marketing manager Ryan Koppy said Thursday morning that a ticket matching the winning Wild Card 2 jackpot numbers from Wednesday’s drawing were sold at the Pit Stop.

Played in four states including North Dakota, Koppy said the winning ticket is worth $673,574, though, as of late Thursday afternoon, no one had come forward to claim the prize.

The winning numbers for the drawing were 2-9-14-22-30 with the wild card being the queen of diamonds. The jackpot starts at $200,000 and grows until a player comes forward with five numbers.

“It’s not unusual for it to be a few days before anyone claims a prize,” Koppy said. “Many who win this amount of money may line up financial advisors and tax consultants before claiming the prize.”

For selling the winning Wild Card 2 ticket, the Pit Stop earned a bonus of $2,000, per lottery rules. Koppy said the ticket is the second Wild Card 2 jackpot winner sold in North Dakota with the first coming in March.

The lucky winner has 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize, though coming forward soon could be quite a boon to the winner’s last-minute holiday shopping fund. The odds of winning the Wild Card 2 jackpot are about one in two million.
