Multi-million dollar winning Powerball ticket sold in Nebraska

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say a Nebraska Powerball player has won $2 million.

The Nebraska Lottery says the winning ticket was sold at a Hy-Vee gas outlet in northwest Omaha.

The ticket matched five of the six numbers drawn Wednesday night but missed the Powerball number. The ticket's $1 million prize was doubled because the ticket buyer bought the Power Play option, which automatically raised the prize to $2 million.

Powerball officials say a ticket sold in Lapeer, Mich., matched all six numbers, winning the buyer the jackpot of $337 million. Officials say the lump sum payout would be $241 million.
