#powerball Dorchester Man Wins $1 Million Powerball Prize

June 11th, 2013

Darold Kempston of Dorchester recently won $1 million playing Nebraska Powerball.

Kempston purchased his winning ticket at Casey's General Store, 301 West 13th Street in Crete. The five-play ticket contained one play with all five white ball numbers (2, 11, 22, 26, 32) from the June 8 drawing for $1 million. This is the sixth million dollar winning ticket sold in Nebraska since Powerball was upgraded on January 15, 2012.

Kempston wasted no time claiming his prize, arriving at Nebraska Lottery headquarters on Monday morning after the drawing. He told Lottery officials that he purchases the same Powerball numbers each week. "First thing Sunday morning I checked the website, and there were my numbers," said Kempston. "Then I got my tickets out of the car to make sure I'd bought one with those numbers. It was quite a surprise." He plans to pay bills, purchase a new truck, and save his winnings for the future.
