Quilting group wins $55K on scratch-off ticket

Posted: Updated:

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.
