TANANA RIVER -- Nenana Ice Classic officials said three Alaskans correctly guessed when the ice would go out this year on the Tanana River.
The winners were identified Wednesday as Donna Smith of Palmer, Chris Arnold of Indian and Alison Foley of Fairbanks. They each will receive $93,010, their share of the $279,030 jackpot.
Ice Classic manager Cherrie Forness said more than 234,000 entries were double-checked to make sure there were no other winners.
The Tanana River ice officially went out at 9:06 a.m. on April 29 when a tripod on the ice floated downstream and the clock in Alaska's richest guessing game stopped.
Last year, the ice went out at 8:41 p.m. on May 1. Two winners guessed the correct time and shared a $283,723 jackpot.
