A retired postal worker from Rapid City claimed $200,000 on Monday by matching four of five winning numbers in addition to the Powerball. His prize grew larger after choosing the multiplier option.
Leo Bald Eagle, who now works part time at Wal-Mart, had a unique set of circumstances en route to his big win. Bald Eagle is part of a country western band called Midnight Sun and decided to test his luck and purchase some tickets before leaving town to perform.
This brought Bald Eagle to the Big D Oil Company on East North Street in Rapid City, where he decided to change his playing routine up a bit.
“God told me to buy the tickets,” Bald Eagle said. “I normally buy Dakota Cash and Lotto America but last minute, I had a feeling come over me that told me to buy two Powerball tickets.”
