Seward resident wins big on Pick 3 three times in five months

Categories: Lotto,Winners

Roger Campbell is a lucky guy.  

He’s won multiple Nebraska Lottery prizes over the years and just since September of 2019, he’s won big on Pick 3 three times.

Roger was back at the Nebraska Lottery’s Lincoln offices on February 18 to get his latest big check.

This time Roger, who lives in Seward, took home $1,126 across two different types of play on two tickets after playing the numbers 3-8-3 for the February 14 draw.

The numbers drawn on Valentine’s Day were 3-3-8, but even still, Roger’s ticket contained five winning Box plays paying $200 each and one winning Straight/Box play that paid $126.

“I played 3-8-3 because it’s on my license plate,” he said.

Before February 18, Roger was last into the Lottery offices in October of 2019 when he won $4,650 playing Pick 3.

In September, Roger won $700 playing Pick 3 and also claimed a $5,005 prize he won playing MyDaY, both of those drawings occurred on the same night.

“It’s a good feeling, but it’s not as exciting as it was the first time,” Roger said of his most recent win. “Winning MyDaY was very exciting, though.”

Roger said he’s a daily player and usually goes for the Nebraska-only games like Pick 3, MyDaY and Pick 5 and he’ll pick up a Scratch ticket every once in a great while.

When it comes to picking which numbers to play, Roger said he usually goes online and searches how long ago certain numbers and number combinations have been drawn. If it’s been a while, he’ll give it a shot.

“I always play straight and box,” he said. “That way it increases the chances of winning something.”

Back in April of 2015, Roger also snagged a $3,000 Pick 3 prize and won $570 playing Powerball, once in 2005 and again in 2006.

Roger used some of his previous winnings to put new carpet in his house, but he’s got some idea of where a little of the most recent win is going.

“I’ll probably use some of it to pay the taxes on the MyDaY win,” he said.
