PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man who won $250,000 in last Friday's Mega Millions drawing has claimed his money.

Lottery officials say Michael Stokke (stohk) of Sioux Falls claimed the money Monday. Lottery officials say he is declining to comment publically about his winnings.

Stokke's ticket matched all five white ball numbers but missed the Mega Ball to win the game's second prize. The odds of winning it are about one in 3.9 million. The store that sold the ticket will get a $10,000 bonus.

Lottery officials say Doug Zens of Tulare also claimed his $10,000 prize from Friday's drawing. Zens matched four of the five white ball numbers and the Mega Ball to win the game's third prize.

The jackpot in the Friday drawing was a record $640 million.
