May 29, 2014 – Billi Jo Jacobsen of Raymond was the third winner of a 2014 Chevrolet® Silverado™ 1500 Crew Cab Flex Fuel truck in the 19th edition of the Nebraska Lottery’s $2 Truck$ & Buck$ Scratch game.
Jacobsen recently purchased her winning Truck$ & Buck$ ticket at Kwik Shop, 2710 W Street in Lincoln. Scratching the ticket, she revealed matching numbers in Game 3 for the corresponding truck prize.
Nebraska Lottery officials presented Jacobsen with her prize on Wednesday, May 21 at Kwik Shop. Jacobsen, who is the manager at the store, told Nebraska Lottery officials that she purchased five Truck$ & Buck$ tickets at the end of a recent shift. “When I scratched them off at home, I couldn’t believe I had the winning ticket,” she said. “It was very exciting.”
Winning seems to run in Jacobsen’s family: in 2006, her brother Steve Addleman won a Toyota Tundra playing Truck$ & Buck$.
