Ord Woman Claims Final Truck$ & Buck$ Truck

Frieda Schatz

Frieda Schatz of Ord is the seventh and final winner of a 2019 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 SuperCrew Flex Fuel truck in the 24th edition of the Nebraska Lottery’s $2 Truck$ & Buck$ Scratch game.

Ord purchased her winning Truck$ & Buck$ ticket at Casey’s General Store #1743 at 204 S 14th St. in Ord.

Nebraska Lottery officials presented Schatz with her truck on Wednesday, August 14 at Casey’s.

Schatz said that she doesn’t normally play Truck$ & Buck$, but decided to play after joking with the store’s manager about his new truck that looked like the ones being given away by the Nebraska Lottery.

Schatz bought her ticket and started to scratch it off on her way home when she discovered she’d won.

“I was going out and I immediately made a U-turn,” she said.

She brought the ticket back to Casey’s and, when she scanned the ticket, the whole store erupted in cheering, she said. A woman who was working in the kitchen came running out, thinking something must be wrong, she said.

Schatz said that she wouldn’t have even bought the ticket, but her brother had found $2 on the ground and gave it to her earlier that day.

“I couldn’t believe it’s possible,” she said. “It’s an answered prayer. I can’t believe it.”
