Mississippi Man Bags $ 1 million During Hunting Trip

A Man from Mississippi went on a hunting trip to South Dakota and bagged a $1 million lottery prize.

In an announcement made earlier this week, the South Dakota Lottery said John Chalk Jr. of Brandon, Mississippi, successfully matched all five main numbers in the US Powerball drawing held on Saturday, October 25, 2014.  If he'd matched the Powerball number as well he would have won the $125 million jackpot.

Chalk claimed his prize on Tuesday and said he purchased his ticket from Highland Travel Plaza on Highland Way in Mitchell while he and his friends were on their annual hunting trip.

Highland Travel Plaza will receive a $20,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
