PIERRE (AP) - South Dakota's two $50,000 Powerball winners from the world-record $1.6 billion Powerball drawing on Wednesday have claimed their winnings.

Lottery officials say Shannon Larson, of Sioux Falls, and Charles Austin, of Rapid City, have redeemed their prices. They both matched four of five white ball numbers and the Powerball in Wednesday's drawing to win the game's third prize. The odds of winning $50,000 playing Powerball are 1 in about 913,000.

The Powerball jackpot will be split three ways, among winners in Florida, Tennessee and California.

The stores that sold the $50,000 winning tickets in South Dakota will each receive a $1,000.

The Powerball jackpot sits at $40 million for Saturday's drawing.
