Patricia Krontz of Homer recently won $1 million playing Nebraska Powerball.
Krontz is a regular Powerball player who purchases tickets every week. For the Saturday, October 26 drawing, she purchased a quick pick Powerball ticket at J & J's Pronto, 108 North Highway 77 in Homer.
Krontz wasted no time claiming her prize, arriving at Nebraska Lottery headquarters on Monday afternoon following the drawing. She told Nebraska Lottery officials that she learned she had won after a friend informed her that a winning ticket had been sold in Homer. "When I heard that, I thought, 'I should go check my tickets,'" said Krontz. "So I went back to the store and checked them. I couldn't believe that I'd won." She plans to pay bills using her winnings.
