An Omaha man has come forward to claim his $1 million Powerball prize won in last Wednesday's drawing.
While working in central Nebraska, Thomas Reiners stopped at the Pump & Pantry in Genoa and purchased a ticket that had all five of the winning white ball numbers (5, 25, 30, 58, 59).
Seven Nebraska Lottery players have won the $1 million Powerball prize since the game was modified on January 15, 2012.
Reiners said Tuesday he learned he had won after checking the winning numbers online. “I was pretty excited when I saw those numbers come up. It made me very happy.” He plans to put his winnings toward retirement.
Three jackpot-winning tickets for the $448 million drawing were sold, two in New Jersey and one in Minnesota.
