Lincoln Man Wins $100,000 Playing Double Diamond

David Kissinger

David Kissinger of Lincoln won $100,000 playing the Double Diamond Scratch game from the Nebraska Lottery.

Kissinger purchased his winning ticket at Super C #4 at 501 West A Street in Lincoln.

When Kissinger came to claim his prize at the Nebraska Lottery’s Lincoln office on January 25, he said that while this might have been his biggest win, it wasn’t his first.

Kissinger won $10,000 on a Nebraska Lottery Scratch ticket back in October of 2018 and a few other $1,000 prizes before that. He even won a television in a drawing at a supermarket not too long ago.

Even with all those wins under his belt, Kissinger said he still had a hard time believing he’d won the $100,000 top prize.

“I was shaking when I took the ticket up to the clerk to get it checked,” he said. “I think she was more excited than I was about the win.”

Kissinger said he’s not sure what he’ll use his winnings on, but he’s planning on paying off a few bills to begin with.

As a $10 Scratch game, Double Diamond offers players a chance to win prizes from a $10 free ticket to $100,000. The chances of winning $100,000 are one in 120,000, while the odds of winning any prize are one in 3.29.
