Stephen Cerny of Fremont recently won a total of $44,000 playing Nebraska 2by2 with the 2by2 Tuesday feature.
There were more than 10,000 Nebraska Lottery winners in the Tuesday, December 18 drawings. Among these winners was Cerny, who purchased his winning 2by2 ticket at Expressway Foodmart, 1800 East Military Road in Fremont. The ticket was good for 14 draws and contained the winning red ball numbers (16, 24) and winning white ball numbers (8, 26) from the December 18 drawing for a corresponding prize of $22,000.
Because Cerny purchased a 14-day multi-draw ticket, his ticket was eligible for the 2by2 Tuesday feature where all prizes won on Tuesdays are doubled, making his $22,000 prize $44,000.
Two hundred and ninety Nebraska Lottery players have won the 2by2 top prize to date. Cerny is the third person in Nebraska to win a doubled top prize since the 2by2 Tuesday feature was launched in February 2008.
2by2 is run by the Multi-State Lottery Association and was introduced in June 2002. Players in Kansas, Nebraska and North Dakota have the opportunity to win up to $22,000 Monday through Sunday by playing 2by2. Players who purchase a multi-draw 2by2 ticket in multiples of seven draws qualify for the free 2by2 Tuesday feature, where all prizes won on Tuesday automatically double in value. The odds of winning the $22,000 2by2 top prize are 1 in 105,625, while the overall odds are 1 in 3.59.
