Wild Card 2 multi-state USA game has ended, despite having pretty good odds of winning for a Powerball type game, only 1 in 1,898,688 (compare that to 1 in 292,201,338 odds of winning Powerball or 1 in 258,890,850 for Mega Millions, and Wild Card 2 was a much better choice!).
The game started in 1994 as Tri-West Lotto and became Wild Card 2 in 1998. Ticket sales have been declining, down by 6.5% from last year, as new games have started and Wild Card 2 has reached its end, according to lottery officials in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Idaho.
Wild Card 2 ticket prizes can still be claimed within 180 days of the drawing date. The jackpot for the last drawing on February 24th was $375,000. If no one wins the prize, the remaining money will be divided among the four states that ran the game.
