COMING SOON: NEBRASKA PICK 5 JACKPOT DOUBLER
Back by popular demand, the Nebraska Pick 5 Jackpot Doubler promotion begins on February 1, 2009.
The Jackpot Doubler promotion doubles the Nebraska Pick 5 jackpot each time it is won during the month of February. If a player correctly picks all 5 out of 5 numbers for a draw during the promotion, the winner would receive double the amount of the advertised jackpot. For example, if the advertised jackpot is $90,000 and all five numbers for that draw are correctly chosen, the winner would be entitled to $180,000.
Though the 'doubler' aspect of the promotion only applies to the jackpot amount, the promotion will continue to apply to all drawings throughout the month regardless of how many times to jackpot is won.
If a Nebraska Pick 5 jackpot is never won during the month of February, then the first jackpot won after February will double. For example, if no jackpot is won in February, but a Nebraska Pick 5 jackpot is next won on March 5, 2009, that jackpot will be doubled.
