Nebraska has a new millionaire. One lucky player who bought a Powerball Power Play ticket for the Wednesday night draw is holding a ticket worth $2,000,000.

The Nebraska Lottery has confirmed that one ticket sold for Wednesday’s $222 million Powerball draw matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball number itself.

The winning ticket was sold at Gas N Snaks, 541 Jackson Avenue in Seward. The winning numbers from the Wednesday, May 8 Powerball draw were 21, 22, 26, 30, 57 and the Powerball was 27.

With a regular Powerball ticket, matching five white ball numbers results in a $1 million prize.

Because the player who purchased the winning ticket added the $1 Power Play option to their purchase, their $1 million prize was increased to $2 million.

This is the second $2 million dollar Power Play winning ticket sold in Nebraska since Powerball was upgraded in January 2012.
