Lincoln Woman Wins $7,200 Playing Pick 3

Laurie Heise

Laurie Heise of Lincoln won $7,200 playing Pick 3 from the Nebraska Lottery. 

Heise purchased her 12 plays of the numbers 2, 5 and 6 for the November 11 Pick 3 drawing at Russ’s Market #14 at 6300 Havelock Avenue in Lincoln.

This isn’t Heise’s first time winning big at Pick 3. In July of 2016, she won $7,200 playing the same numbers. She said there’s no real significance to the numbers she uses, she does consider them to be her lucky numbers.

Even though she’s hit it big twice, Heise said she’ll continue to play the same numbers.

“I love to win and I love playing,” she said.

Heise is planning on helping her son buy a car and saving the rest of her winnings for Chirstmas presents.

Nebraska Pick 3 was introduced in May of 2005. Nebraska Pick 3 sales have exceeded $18 million and provided more than $4 million for Nebraska Lottery beneficiary funds. The odds of winning the Nebraska Pick 3 $600 top prize are 1 in 1,000 and the odds of winning any prize vary with the bet type selected.
