There were more than 17,500 Nebraska Lottery winners in the Saturday, November 24th drawings. Among these winners was Malone, who purchased his winning ticket at Casey’s General Store, 1001 I Street in Palmyra. The five-play ticket contained one play with four of the five winning white ball numbers (22, 32, 37, 44, 50) and the Powerball number (34) from the November 24 drawing for $10,000.
Four hundred and five Nebraska Lottery players have won the $10,000 Powerball prize to date.
While claiming his prize on November 26, Malone told Nebraska Lottery officials that he was “shocked” to realize that he had won $10,000. He learned he had won after a Facebook friend told him that a winning ticket had been sold at Casey’s General Store in Palmyra. Malone plans to remodel his kitchen using his winnings.
The odds of winning $10,000 playing Powerball are 1 in 648,975, and the overall odds of winning any prize are 1 in 31.8.
