There were more than 2,000 Nebraska Lottery winners in the Sunday, January 13th drawings. Among these winners was Black, who purchased her winning ticket at Ken & Al's Service, 308 North D Street in Fairfield. The ticket contained three plays. One play contained the winning red ball numbers (17, 22) and winning white ball numbers (17, 22) from the January 13 drawing for a corresponding prize of $22,000.
Two hundred and ninety Nebraska Lottery players have won the 2by2 top prize to date.
Black wasted no time claiming her prize, arriving at Nebraska Lottery headquarters the day after the drawing. She learned she had won after checking the Nebraska Lottery website, nelottery.com. “I saw those numbers and I thought, ‘I just won $22,000,’” said Black. She plans to pay bills and take a trip using her winnings.
