A Homer, Nebraska woman has claimed the $1 million Powerball lottery prize she won in last Saturday's drawing.
The ticket was sold to Patricia Krontz at J & J's Pronto on North Highway 77 in Homer. Her ticket matched the first five numbers (4, 6, 34, 49 and 56) but not the Powerball number of 29.
Krontz told lottery officials on Monday that she'll use her winnings to pay some bills.
No one won the jackpot Saturday night, so it will be around $50 million for Wednesday's drawing.
