Powerball Winner Sold In Omaha

One of three winning Powerball tickets was sold at an Omaha convenience store only three hours before Wednesday night's drawing.

The Kwik Shop manager at 72nd and Crown Point Kathy Miller said shortly after eight this morning that no one had stepped into the store claiming the winning numbers.

However, she says, lots of other people visited the store buying Powerball tickets and hoping a bit of luck rubs off on them for the next drawing.

Nebraska Lottery spokesman Tom Johnson says whoever bought the ticket must sign it and travel to Lincoln to claim the winning numbers.

Two other winning tickets were sold in Arizona and Pennyslvania will share the nearly 31 million dollars.

Johnson says after taxes, each ticket is worth a cash option of nearly four million dollars.

The winning numbers were: 2, 7, 11, 24, 3l and the Powerball was 18. The Power Play was 5.
