#powerball Seward Man Wins $2 Million Playing Powerball Power Play®

May 14th, 2013

Lonnie White of Seward recently won $2 million playing Nebraska Powerball with Power Play.

With a $222 million jackpot up for grabs in the Wednesday, May 8 Powerball drawing, White stopped at Gas N Snaks, 536 Roberts Street in Seward to purchase a ticket. His three-play quick pick ticket contained one play that matched all five of the winning white ball numbers (21, 22, 26, 30, 57) from the May 8 drawing.

With a regular Powerball ticket, matching five white ball numbers results in a $1 million prize. Because White added the $1 Power Play option to his purchase, the $1 million prize was automatically increased to $2 million.

While claiming his prize on May 10, White told Nebraska Lottery officials that he learned he had won when he returned to Gas N Snaks the morning after the drawing. "I stopped by on my way to work to check my ticket," said White. "When the clerk told me how much it was worth, I said, 'Holy cow - I won!' It was quite a surprise." He plans to pay bills and donate to charity using his winnings.
