(Neb)-$160,000 Nebraska Pick 5 Ticket Sold In Gering
LINCOLN - One lucky player who bought a Nebraska Pick 5 ticket in Gering for last Saturday's drawing is holding a ticket worth $160,000.
The Nebraska Lottery has confirmed that one ticket matched all five winning numbers for the $160,000 jackpot, and that it was sold at Pony Express in Gering. The winner has 180 days from Saturday to claim the jackpot.
Nebraska Pick 5 is Nebraska's unique Lottery game, played only in the Cornhusker State and with drawings every night.
The jackpot...which starts at $50,000...grew faster than normal because of a special month-long promotion for July that increased the pot by $10,000 instead of the regular $4,000 after each drawing without a winner.
. The odds of winning the Nebraska Pick 5 jackpot are 1 in 501,942 while the overall odds of winning any Nebraska Pick 5 prize are 1 in 8.
