Nebraska Lottery November Update
NEW HOLIDAY SCRATCH GAMES
This winter, the Nebraska Lottery is offering a new lineup of
holiday-themed $1, $2, and $3 Scratch games perfect for holiday gift giving.
At the $1 price point is Stocking Stuffer. This quick-play game features five different
ticket scenes and a write-in area for the names of the giver and recipient, making it
perfect for gift giving.
The M&M'S® characters are back for a second year with the $2 Tree
Trimmin' Tripler game. The ticket artwork features the Blue M&M'S®
character, and the game offers a merry top prize of $10,000.
New for 2011 at the $3 price point is Sugar Cookies, which features a Match 3 play
style and mouth-watering artwork of holiday cookies. Scan the QR code on the back of your
Sugar Cookies ticket with your smartphone or go to nelottery.com/sugarcookies to design
your own sugar cookie greeting and send it to a friend.
All three Scratch games are available for a limited time during the holiday season,
and are perfect as stocking stuffers, gifts for co-workers, or something fun for the
person who already has everything. Envelopes for giving Nebraska Lottery tickets are
available at Nebraska Lottery retailers or online at nelottery.com for members of the
Nebraska Lottery MVP Club.

BLACK FRIDAY MYDAY NTH TICKET PROMOTION
When you're out on Black
Friday, don't forget about shopping for your favorite lottery games! Buy a MyDaY ticket
on November 25, and you could have the chance to win a free MyDaY ticket in the one-day
Black Friday MyDaY Nth Ticket promotion.
A trailer ticket will be produced on every 9th, 99th and 990th MyDaY purchase across
the state on Friday, November 25. The lottery terminal will sound and a trailer ticket
will print following the purchased ticket each time the Nth purchase is triggered.
- Every 9th ticket will create one free MyDaY play good for the November 25 draw;
- Every 99th ticket will create one free MyDaY play, good for the November 25 –
December 1 draws (6 total);
- Every 990th ticket will create one free MyDaY play, good for the November 25 –
December 24 draws (26 total).
The total cost, or amount of plays of the MyDaY purchase, does not determine the Nth
ticket trigger – this is based solely on the number of MyDaY transactions across
Nebraska. Every 99th ticket will only trigger the 99th ticket prize, and will not trigger
the 9th ticket prize. Additionally, every 990th ticket will only trigger the 990th ticket
prize, and will not also trigger the 9th or 99th ticket prizes. The promotion will end at
9:00 p.m. (C.T.) on November 25.

Changes to Powerball will coincide with the 20th year of the multi-state game.
Jackpots will start at $40 million, which is double the current $20 million starting
jackpot. In addition to increasing the size of the starting jackpot, Powerball officials
aim to make it easier to win other prizes. The white ball side will remain at 59, while
the red ball side will fall from 39 to 35. The ticket price will change to $2 per
This is the sixth redesign for the best-known multi-state jackpot game since it was
created in 1992. The last change was in January 2009.
